Spectacular shot, covering nice heights. The place looks like a paradise in the midst of many mountains. Seems to have been a challenging task building the monastery in such a landscape..!!

Very nice view of these dramatic mountains and rocks.
The monastery looks so tiny on the edge of the cliff, but l read, it is a large building.
Very beautiful capture!
