Went there during the 24th to 27th. For around 850 CNY a night, we were treated to a great spacious room that has a real fireplace. The staff is probably the best I have ever seen. Sincere, patient, and always comes with a smile. The buffet breakfast and dinner are decent, but nothing special. Every night the staff will light up the fireplace in the room. The starry sky is breathtaking and I really enjoy the walk to the back side of the monastery even in freezing weather. The water is hot 95% of the time, since we were told the retreat uses solar power, there may be a few problems occasionally. Going to the city can be a pain due to the location, it will take around 30 to 40 CNY by taxi by going through a very bumpy road. But since this is a retreat, this really isn't anything to complain about.
Overall, this is a great place to stay, I highly recommend it.
