We did Lantau Island on one of our days off from business meetings and luncheons on a trip to Hong Kong and area. We had done the Buddha climb and needed to get away from the thousands of other tourists so we saw the sign...More

Serene and peaceful walk... Something special compare to other trekking trail in HKG. Don't miss the observatory deck just few steps away (heading to Phoenix Mountain/Lantau Peak)... Nice view!

I don't know what every message tells on every wood but the thought that they take effort to carve the letters on it and erected it, i think it should be powerful. I love the simplicity of arrangements. It doesn't really attractive but the location...More

Breathtaking. A must visit after dropping by at the Big Buddha. It’s only walking distance and you’ll pass through a peaceful and quiet trail. The trail itself has great sceneries. It’s a flat trail so don’t worry about any inconvenience.

A brilliant and peaceful walk from the Ngong Village. The path is extremely beautiful and has some amazing views of the ocean.

This is a nice quiet walk from the Tian Tan Big Buddha down a pathway in the woods. You'll pass by some abandoned buildings that have overgrowth from the surrounding nature, which make for some nice photos. Just a relaxing attraction to just take in...More

The path is a short walk from the Tian Tan Buddha. You just follow the signs and you end up at the entrance of the forest trails. The Wisdom Path is just off to the side of the rest area. The inscriptions are made on...More

If you want to get away from the hustle of Big Budda, take the 10-15 minute walk to get to the Wisdom Path. It's through some forest and brush but it's a calming, shaded stroll. You'll only need maybe 10 minutes here. There isn't much...More

There are signs that will guide you there, just keep following them. It's about a 10 minute walk down some paths past the Buddha (away from the main walkway to get to the Buddha)
