Overview

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 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.

I came here because I heard it was a must do and was also told it was pretty cool. It's free to get in. It's not a far walk from the metro. It's a mini hike to get to the top but not too bad....More

A nice and short outing. It doesn't take a whole day to visit the ten thousand buddhas, and it can be combined with cycling or shopping around the shatin area.There are some vegetarian meal options also here.

Use a guide - I did Ashley from WithLocals - otherwise you will not find this on your own. A challenging climb but very much worth the effort and you will see some of the New Territories.

The steps with lined all the different Buddha statues gave an almost eire feeling. Especially since I was all alone during my ascend. The views from the top over Shatin and the valley is spectacular and a good reward for the sweat. Beside the views...More

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.
