If you have fear of heights, don't visit this place. Otherwise, it is a zen way to start your visit at HK.

I never even knew this place existed in all the times I visited HK. It was only when I took a friend with me, that through his research, discovered this as a tourist attraction. There is an approximate 500 steps up a hill to the top, of which on the way is fulled lined with statues of monks with a... More

Me & my family decided to have a go at seeing this place. We go to HK once every 3 years and somehow still haven't gone to see it. I highly recommend you read the guides on how to find it and to read other peoples reviews. I didn't expect a long climb nor hundreds of steps... Lets just say... More

We went on a damp day in March and it was perfect for climbing up the steps! There is also a ramp next to the steps so it was pushchair friendly for us - however you need a lot of energy to push up the steep slopes. I have to say if we hadn't been on Tripadvisor first we would... More

A short walk from the Sha Tin MTR station. Look for the entrance (in the picture) at the end of Sheung Wo Che Road. Approx. 450 steps up! - but definitely worth it.

We found 10,000 Buddhas as a suggestion to stay off the beaten path from the Big Buddha on Lantau. We only had two days in HK and once we took the train in from the airport, we didn't want to use our time to go back to Lantau. Plus, the gondola was out of service while we were there. Really...

The place is really religious and historic. The Buddha's are beautiful and the place is quiet and clean.

This is by no means an easy walk. The hill is VERY steep, and you climb for what feels like forever. You will pass so many Buddhas, it's like there's ten thousand or something. On the way you will also pass a million people trying to take selfies in front of each Buddha (that's not annoying or anything). Eventually you... More

My daughter and I embarked on the trek to the summit one hot summer day. Be prepared for many, many steps. There is an escalator at the start, but it doesn't go far. This temple is in use by local families, where they come to remember ancestors so you will come across families and individuals praying and burning incense. The... More
