Wenshu Monastery & Grottoes 

After Zhangye our continued journey along the highway into Xinjiang took us towards Jiayuguan. Before reaching there we branched off and climbed into the Qilian Shan to Wenshu, an area populated by Nima people, to quiet Buddhist sites which seemed to receive few visitors. (This should not be confused with the Wenshu near Changdu.)
