Stunning Video Captures Six Monasteries from Above


Take flight over six famous monasteries in this one-of-a-kind video. The holiness of the monasteries is almost palpable, as many of them sit atop soaring natural sandstone rock pillars and are only reachable by ascent. Similarly, our journey to the Kingdom of God is only reachable when we cast off all the weight of this earthly world, and ascend step-by-step. Watch the video above and let us know what you think. Have you ever been to any of these monasteries?
