While the mountain-top location is impressive, the monastery is currently a construction site. Not worth visiting until the renovation has been substantially completed—which is going to be a while. That said, it is good to see that the monastery is being physically rescued.

Treskavec is definitely a must see monastery - the frescoes are amazing. When I visited a lot of constructions/renovation works were going on, but still very worth to see.
