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.

When you come here, the entrance of the temple is not obvious: you may be temped to enter the area in front of a building with a parking lot, but that is not it.  You'll instead walk on a path along the back of the...More

It was 29 degrees c and very humid when we went. Take water, a fan and wear good walking shoes and cool clothing. It is steep but numerous resting spots are provided and hand rails. Absolutely gorgeous views. Completely different feeling from Tian Tan Buddha,...More

The 10,000 Buddha Monastery is an incredibly unique experience to have in Hong Kong. The walk is not for the faint-hearted, being predominantly uphill, with steep sections proving difficult in the humid weather. In saying that, there is a ramp and stair option, so you...More

Tucked away at the back of Shatin is this peaceful Monastery with many Buddhas lining the path to the temples at the top. It is though a steep climb! But once you get there it is certainly a worthwhile environment to look around and savour...More

Perhaps a little off the beaten tourist track around HK but definitely worth a visit if time permits. Be prepared for a stiff climb and some sweat but your efforts will be amply rewarded. Exit Sha Tin MTR station on the opposite side to the...More

the beginning point is a bit tricky to find. Then you have to walk a lot of stairs next to thesuggestive buddha statues (take your time it's not very hard but it could be very hot). The place deserves a visit.

Not sure how Buddhist this really is, it seemed more of a tourist thing. The only "Monk" we saw charged us $250HKD for a blessing and a charm. There is a café at the top. Worth a look as its interesting, but please be aware...More

The walk up the hill is fringed with golden buddhas in various incarnations (I'm guessing). You will not be disappointed - and you can have a vegetarian lunch at the top. Easy to get to on the MTR.

You go to the ShaTin stop! (I believe it's the baby blue line). There is no entrance fee :)
