Located close to big buddha on Lantau island is this simple yet amazing place that have half cut log pieces; sort of tablets erected over a hill section with Chinese calligraphy. Visit to this place is for more of a self-realization activity. I could not...More

The path is a short walk from the Tian Tan Buddha. You just follow the signs and you end up at the entrance of the forest trails. The Wisdom Path is just off to the side of the rest area. The inscriptions are made on...More

If you want to get away from the hustle of Big Budda, take the 10-15 minute walk to get to the Wisdom Path. It's through some forest and brush but it's a calming, shaded stroll. You'll only need maybe 10 minutes here. There isn't much...More

It was a short walk from Tian Tan Buddha. Since the weather was cool despite the heat from the Sun, we decided to go here. We only encountered 2-3 persons in the trail going to the Wisdom Path. We took a rest first in the...More

Though it says 15mins away, it took us longer. We enjoyed the walk, since its a nice weather and cooler in December. Its a bit uphill but overall its worth walking.

I'm glad we visited this place. It's a very good place to meditate or just sit back and enjoy the scenery. There are few visitors visiting this place. The place is a 20-minute hike from the buddha.

Wisdom Path traces a series of 38 wooden steles (upright monuments) containing verses from the centuries-old Heart Sutra — one of the world’s best-known prayers revered by Confucians, Buddhists and Taoists alike. These steles display the Chinese version of the prayer, based on the calligraphy...More

There are signs that will guide you there, just keep following them. It's about a 10 minute walk down some paths past the Buddha (away from the main walkway to get to the Buddha)
