The monastery is incredibly serene and peaceful. You can reach it from Mirik Lake, but it's a steep climb, so not suitable for the elderly. However, the climb is worth it for a more fulfilling experience. Upon entering, a sense of calm washed over me, and I found myself standing still for about 10 minutes. Afterward, I sat on a bench, watching students from the monastery and school play football together in the gentle, cool breeze. It's a place to appreciate beauty and return with a fresh perspective.
