This is the new and active rock monastery.
Mildly strenuous but short walk up the cliff stairs. Interesting site overall. Ancient living rooms, chapel, artifacts. 5 living monks have 2 masses daily and you will probably see some of them.

The easiest and quick way to visit the place is by taxi. Allow 2 1/2 to 3 hours for the whole trip and visit. Since you are on a tour on the river, your agent should know about the organised visit to the monastery and the various excursions from the port.I saw at least three buses with tourists groups when I visited the place.
Good luck and have a nice trip.
