This walk was amazing! It is quite a steep climb and hard in the heat but it is well worth it. The views are the top were incredible and the peace on entering the monastery is amazing.

the view of the monastery on the edge of the mountain as we approached it via the cable car was awesome, then walking through the monastery itself was even more amazing. This was the most memorable place I visited - still speechless...

We walked up the stairs to this monastery, which proved to be good exercise! If you struggle in this regard, the views from the restaurant are as good. That said, you would miss seeing the monastery which has been shaped from the rock face. There...More

También se puede acceder al monasterio por un camino que contorna toda la montaña sin subir al teleférico. De hecho es utilizado por muchos peregrinos!
