Meditation Mount is a beautiful, serene, peaceful experience. If you want to sit and look at the mountains or in the meditation room in a calm environment, this is the place for you. The landscaping is gorgeous and the views are spectacular. I went during they day - I bet sunset would be magical!

The drive up was beautiful, but a little bit of a skinny road. When it says go slow, go slow! The grounds are beautiful. We were so glad we took the time to go up.
