Hike & monastery visit

Today it is time to admire the monasteries up close by heading to the tops of these mysterious dark grey rocks. In the past, the monasteries could only be reached via a pulley system but today most can be reached on foot via stairs. At its inception, communities of monks often lived in the monasteries that were completely isolated and some of them monasteries are still inhabited today but luckily they do accept visitors.
