It is definitely worth visiting this place. The frescoes and the views are amazing. Pack water for the walk up because it is hard and long especially in the summer heat

Beautiful place!! A Historic site located on top of the mountains. You have to walk for 1 km and climb Too many stairs to reach the monastery site (for me at least!)

What a wonderful place. It's starting with the climb trough the nature with waterfalls and at the top is the historical mega structure laying on the edge of the mountain.

What an amazing view. Still not open for the public. Drive up to last rest area then take a professional bus driver to the nearest spot. Scarry drive.

As of 7/21/2019, the monastery is “open” but in reality, all you do is hike up to see it from afar. Totally not worth it!

Finally reopened as of End of May 2019. As soon as you see cars starting to park on the road, find a spot and walk. The drive up is constant gridlock.
