Located in the Central Square (中心广场) of the prefecture level city of Zhangye in Gansu, this nine-story wooden pagoda was built during the Sui Dynasty. The Mù Tǎ Sì (木塔寺) collapsed a number of times in its history but was rebuilt each time. It sort of reminds one of the adage that "it does not matter how many times one falls - it matters how many times one gets back up".

The reward of c
limbing up the steep staircase to the top of the pagoda is the breathtaking view of the surroundings of Zhangye and the Qilian mountains (祁连山脉). During certain times of the year, this range of mountain is capped with snow.
