Other than visiting the monastery, hiking along the mountain is popular. A web of trails leads to various views of the valley as well as to about a dozen small, deserted hermitages. Some of the trails end in steep cliffs or provide close-up views of the rock pillars that give the mountain is serrated look.Since the monastery is set into the side of the mountain, those who want to visit the mountain top will need to ride the funicular train (or hike). The funicular has a small fee, but saves both time and a long hike to the summit.
