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.

We went early on a Monday morning. It was actually surprisingly easy to get there from the MTR (I followed the directions in Lonely Planet and didn't have a problem at all). There was hardly anyone there - which was really refreshing for Hong Kong....More

The entrance to this place is tucked away along what seems like a broken sidewalk. Buddhas line a 20 minute climb which can be steep in areas (but paved) to the top of the hill where the monastery sits. Great way to spend an afternoon!

We visited first thing in the morning, about 10am and it was deserted. The path up is steep with around 500 steps i'd guess, but there's no rush so take your time and admire all the Buddhas on the way. At the top is the...More

Monastery situated on steep hill. Site is not too easy to find, and with over 500 steps to climb, is not for everyone.

There is no exaggeration with the name of this monastery. Top attraction and free to view. There are wild monkeys to see once you have reached the main hall.

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