We've visited a few monastries in this area, but this is the most impressive. It is in a very secluded spot, high up in the mountains. It is accesible from the village through a very steep 2 kilometre road. It took us 45 minutes to climb up there. It still functions as a monastry., so it is a very solemn experience. We're not sure, but only the guided tour will get you inside the monastry.
