We enjoyed the cable car up to the monastery. Great views on the car and at the monastery. Busy with tourists but to be expected. Gorgeous garden

I was lucky that there were not so many tourists when I came, so I could walk alone in the pine forest. This is a perfect place to have time for your soul and mediate in nature.
