Access is very easy-just in Hill stomp 15 minutes from the bus station to the station of the cableway. On the ropeway ride no more than 5 minutes, and there are already a couple of steps up to the monastery. It is best to come here early and given to the monastery of 2 hours walking. In the garden, pagodas, pond-serene atmosphere reigns everywhere work, easy and light energy.
