Wisdom Path, Hong Kong
(4.2/5 based on 30+ reviews on the web)
Take a meditative walk along Wisdom Path, an arrangement of monuments representing important prayer verses. The 38 monuments each display verses from the ancient Heart Sutra, which is sacred to Confucians, Buddhists, and Taoists. Wander up close and you'll see the prayers, engraved in Chinese symbols into the structures. Notice how the monuments form an infinity pattern. While a popular attraction, the place retains a feeling of serenity and calm. Combine this with a visit to the Big Buddha and Po Lin Monastery. Put Wisdom Path into our Hong Kong itinerary builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • 早有耳聞尺樹字弘的"心經簡林"已經竣工了11年,但每次去了昂坪市集、天壇大佛又經常忽略此處,今天專程走一趟,好為推介香港旅遊多一址。 匠心獨運、獨具ㄧ格的戶外藝術大作,言簡義豐、博大精深的"心經",本意是透過般若大智慧,超越生死輪迴。 於2005年竣工,是全球最大戶外的木刻佛經群,位於香港大嶼山木魚山東麓,鄰近昂坪。竹林由38條花梨木柱組成,當中37條刻有漢學家饒宗頤墨寶《摩訶般若波羅蜜多心經》。...  more »
  • Is not too much difference between people and lively atmosphere around the Buddha is the way to go here is less than 30 minutes and walk slowly from the big Buddha statue. It is recommended you like power spot if you have time. Like but not in Buddha's break is good enough.

  • This place is beautiful, feels like a place for learning Kung Fu or Tai Chi Chuan. Very peaceful and perfect for a gentle stroll. Pro tip: make sure you go all the way til the top to see great views of the mountains and the Big Buddha!
  • MTR Tung Chung Station, Exit B and go to the Tung Chung Cable Car Terminal. Take a 25-minute cable car ride to the Ngong Ping Cable Car Terminal and follow the sign; or, MTR Tung Chung Station, Exit B. From the bus terminus next to the MTR station, take bus 23 to the Po Lin Monastery. Then follow the signs to the Tea Garden and walk through the hiking trail from the Tea Garden's entrance for approximately 15 minutes.
  • A visually stunning if not short trek close to the Buddha statue on Lantau Island . This is worth a visit on your way to climb Lantau Peak or as a satisfyingly picturesque substitute if you're not feeling up to the exertion.
  • Nice ,quite place with amazing sceenic beauti , must go
  • A relatively good view, and contemplation to be had. while strolling along the path towards the wisdom path. Not very far, but it's relatively quiet.
