First rate tourist attraction but certainly not over crowded the day we visited. Rich in history but a long trek up to the Monastery. Definitely become more touristy than when we last visited some 13 years ago. At that time to get up to the entrance of the Monastery you could ride a donkey but those days are gone and there is now a paved road. There are now tourist shops where there used to be small houses with ladies sitting outside selling local crafts, we missed them. However, things do change and we enjoyed our experience this time although it was very different. Much more commercial. When you climb up to the top of the Monastery there are some wonderful views so well worth the effort.
