follow the steps down to the left when you reach what seems to be just a cliff edge, then past the cave entrance down some more steps to the monastery ruin itself and the bridge, which you can see from the cave and is only 50m at most i think. From here there is a rough path down into the bottom of the valley itself, but the monks ask people not to go down there and it doesn't look easy, so take a look around and go back up the steps the way you came down.
