This is one of those places on earth that no photograph can do justice to. Built into a cliff face is some of the most stunning scenery one could imagine with mountain forests of dense evergreens. Be prepared to climb the last few hundred meters, but the payoff is worth it! The frescos are beautiful, and it's hard to imagine how this place could have ever been built. You may huff and puff a little bit, but it's certainly worth it!
