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 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.

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.
