Very interesting background to this monastery and a lovely place to visit, with great mountainside views and historical artefacts to see. Also a great cafe, located under the cool shade of the trees - even good to sit there in the hot summer.

What was the road to the monastry like - was it bitumen throughout, broas and steel fenced ? We had a bad experience on the way to Adonis Falls, the rooad was rubble with steep unfenced precipice type drops to the valley.
