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.

First things first: there's more than 10,000 Buddhas there: I haven't counted them but I read that it's closer to 13,000. Secondly: if you suffer from any cardiac illness - don't. It's 400+ steps to the top and it's a lactic acid driver to get...More

You need to be fairly fit for this trip, although there is a rest stop on the way up. Cold drinks available at the top. Signs ask you not to sit on the empty plinths on the way up but almost everyone going up disregarded...More

The path is paved, however, it is quite steep in places. Also, if you’re going now, it will be extraordinarily hot and humid. Personally, there are a lot of more suitable places to take your 10 month-old in HK.
