I have not 'been' there yet, but I have no issue with counting it after taking a cruise around the peninsula. One can apparently see the monasteries quite well from the boat.

Sounds great I'll do that in summer :) I didn't want to spend days in a monastery anyway lolz

If you have binoculars (or a decent optical zoom on your camera) make sure you take them. The boat generally doesn't go within about 500 metres of the coastline, so although you can get a great view of the monasteries, you can't really see much of the detail. To get a better idea, you can check out my video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1VQKFX3hUx4
