It was freezing when we stayed here although there was a good quality wall mounted heater in the room. Bring warm gear if you stay here in cold weather! The room was very clean and comfortable though and it did warm up (you freeze again the moment you step out of it though). We were beautifully cared for by the monks, they even ran us a hot bath to thaw us out! We were woken up at 6am for morning prayers, which was a critical part of the experience. The food was very basic though. If you are a Western Tourist you might need to supplement the food with some snacks - there is a convenience store round the corner. There are some wonderful walks very close to the Monastery, very atmospheric at night. So don't expect luxury. But you will have a very special and memorable experience here.
