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.

It is part of the Lantau Island. Beautiful monastery. You should spend 4-5 hours to enjoy this. Walk in the gardens, enjoy local food.
