Well worth the climb!

Although the stairs may appear steep and daunting it's very worth it, the Buddhas at the top of the hill are fantastic, if your lucky enough to have some sunshine the view is also... read more

I had a real moment of tranquillity and awe during this walk. It's probably the best thing I did in my 7 weeks stay in Hong Kong. There are lots of steps, but the statues get better and better the more you climb. Don't forget to stop off at what looks like a café about half way up - there's... More

The place is not well maintained and the background of the buddhas along the stairs give you the impression you are walking around in a construction side. Not worth the effort going all the way up that hill

The buddhas are all one of a kind, so that is interesting. I wonder if I can use face recognition on Facebook to tag them :) Only really worth it if you like to hike in my opinion. It is difficult to find the road up to the buddhas, there is a small ally you need to pass through next... More

The ten thousand buddy's monastery is quite difficult to find so ensure you research the area and route (perhaps printing a map) to take with you. If you end up in the cemetery as we did you have gone wrong - the entrance to ten thousand buddas is actually just adjacent. The climb is long and quite steep however it... More

The number of golden buddhas built along the sloping stairs are just amazing, and each with a different expression, simply cannot be missed!

Beautiful hike up the hill - the path is lined with gold-painted Buddhas in various reincarnations. The views from the top are incredible. You are allowed to photograph everything except for the halls of worship. There is a sign about avoiding feeding (& this being bitten by) monkeys but we did not see any. It was a peaceful place devoid... More

It has been raining constantly and I was worried I wouldn't make it to this attraction. It is not listed in many of the hotels or travel brochures. It is not a real monastery and you won't find Monks here or anything like that. Once the rain stopped for a second, my husband and I decided to give it a... More

Forget about the other commercial tourist attractions. We took the MTR to Sha Tin station; and followed the map to get there. The track starts at the end of Sheung Wo Che Road. Both side of the hill slope are lined with golden status of human size Buddha figures all the way to the top of the hill. The view... More
