Take a meditative walk along Wisdom Path, an arrangement of monuments representing important prayer verses. The 38 monuments each display verses from the ancient Heart Sutra, which is sacred to Confucians, Buddhists, and Taoists. Wander up close and you'll see the prayers, engraved in Chinese symbols into the structures. Notice how the monuments form an infinity pattern. While a popular attraction, the place retains a feeling of serenity and calm. Combine this with a visit to the Big Buddha and Po Lin Monastery.

  • You have to go all the way on the Gongping 360, but it is one of Hong Kong's most famous power spots. The power of nature that is exuded from the fantastic scenery is full from the body.

  • A bit off the track but the directions are clear and easy to follow. Expect some 10 to 15 mins walk from the Big Buddha. Very beautiful, peaceful, calm, and you can have the whole place for yourself i...  more »

  • The wood post are kind of on a hidden path. The hike/walk to wisdom post is not bad but I can definitely understand how people can go astray and get lost. I was lucky to have a local guide that knew where it was. Beyond these wisdom post is a nice hike with a great view. That hike is not for novice.
  • Good to go and visit. There are 38 wooden monuments inscribed with the Heart Sutra prayer & offering sea views. They remind me of those ancient Chinese dramas where they used these to bury their loved ones.
