Here are some of the most amazing hanging monasteries in the world. These ancient monastery sites were built on steep cliffs often accessible only by secret paths to provide seclusion and serene surroundings. Why? Because when you gotta get some peace with the God of your choice, you don’t want a tourist trying to use the GPS on his cell phone to find “the righteous path”! Take a look. Enjoy.
