  • Such a cool place! Recommend visiting but make sure to take the busses. The ladies here were super helpful too! We missed the bus after our visit, the restuarant across the street was closed, and the next bus took an hour. There is nothing else to do here. We went to the ladies and they helped call a taxi.
  • Beautiful monastery set high on a hill. Views were incredible from the tower. Superb staff!
