Is the answer a 5-letter word? Is the answer a single word at all?

Is it somewhere in North Dakota, USA?

Which prompts us to the next question: Where are the fittest & healthiest monks of the WORLD?

I know what you are thinking about. Caine accepts your compliment:D

[Edit: I don't know why I've put Ken instead of Caine]

Your mentioning "at the end" in the above quote prompted me to suggest "Land's End" even though I was aware this was too many extra letters. I wasn't too hopeful but still decided to give it a shot.

Reading your same quote I'm now thinking the (a) is the extra "letter" even though it is encased in brackets. I've tried adding "a" to each of the above three words, viz. planet, meteor and land and I get "planeta, meteora and landa... none of these sound like a place on earth. Alternatively, putting the "a" at the beginning of these three words gives "aplanet, ameteor or aland" all of which don't make sense either.

Still thinking?

PS. It seems udosuk has got the answer and if so, well done.. I'm still trying to work out though what is the answer (place)

Thanks MCC. So the answer is Meteora. Now I can go to bye-byes tonite not racking my brains out trying to sus this out.:) Once again, a very intriguing riddle. These riddles would make an interesting talk-back radio or TV program....far more interesting than one of our local mid-night TV channels rewarding callers who ring in with the correct answers to stupid questions.

Cec, you managed to get "meteor" quite early on and I thought it might end up another quick riddle but someone took a diversion.

I'm glad "someone" took a diversion:) Solving these riddles too quickly usually means the next one is a lot harder although still intriguing and interesting. Congratulations again udosuk for "cracking" this mystery and commiserations to Tarek for missing out by just two minutes:D
