A steep climb to reach, but efforts are rewarded with over 12,000 Buddhas both outside and inside the temple. There is no admission fee. A small restaurant at the top offers refreshments, but bring your own water for the trail.

A lot of steps (about 400), hard to up. But when you are on the top, a beautiful view opens up. There is ten thousand buddas.

A short 15-minute walk to the destination. Quite beautiful, great view and monkeys along the way. The Buddhas along the path are certainly very entertaining to look at! A bit hard to find- walk down the bridge from New Town Plaza, follow the path all...More

It is part of the Lantau Island. Beautiful monastery. You should spend 4-5 hours to enjoy this. Walk in the gardens, enjoy local food.

A must if you appreciate Buddhism. Once you get to the top it is very serene. Make sure you take lots of water with you if you opt to go through the old village, as there are a lot of steps and thinning air.

Depends on how much time you have. Be as quick or slow as you want. If you’re in good health it doesn’t take long to climb to the top. The steps are small and easy. Take water though.
