Away from noise pollution and in the midst of nature, White Monastery gives you an opportunity to enjoy what it is to be in such a place. Not only the foreign tourists, you will also see the locals hanging out in this place; it seems they have taken a break from their busy schedules.
White Monastery is accessible by a private vehicles, and you can do this by a local bus. But the local bus will take more time so it will be better to travel by a private vehicle. After visiting this monastery, a short trek will be another better option for you.
Note: This is to inform you that White Monastery used to open on Saturday before, but now it is opened on Sunday. During Saturday, many visitors disturbed the monks as they were praying. This not only helped the visitors to visit in their own way but also the monks to do their pray peacefully
