Wisdom Path - Review

The Wisdom path may as well be the route to nirvana with its beautiful views and unmatched spirituality. It is dotted with 38 wooden steles that have been inscribed with Chinese prayers. These constitute the Heart Sutra prayer which is a popular Buddhist prayer. These columns are arranged in the sign of infinity and even though you might not understand the inscriptions on them, there is a chance that you will come back feeling calm and blessed. The walk along the path is not more than 15 minutes.

Wisdom Path, Hong Kong Reviews

  • After visited the Tian Tan Buddha, you can just walk and follow the path to Wisdom Path. I was lucky because I went there when it was still in the morning. So there was not so many people. It was a really peaceful walk in the wood. The direction was so easy to find. The day was hot because it was summer, so please bring a shade (hat, umbrella, sunglasses etc). I did not see any food stall so bringing your own water and snack is recommended. Try to read the information carefully. Early morning walk or afternoon walk probably is better. Have a map or guide book with yourself so it is easier to find information.

  • An eerie mild hike with less people on the road than the hustling and bustling stairs of Big Buddha. Wisdom path is a serene place that fills you with tranquility. The Heart Sutra engraved on the slender pillars are spiritually invigorating!

  • A relaxing experience, it's a distance away from Po Lin temple, following a path that brings you past abandoned and dilapidated tea houses. Persevere and you would be rewarded with an interesting sight, that is the wooden tablets that stand tall along the slopes of a knoll. I do not know what the carved characters mean, probably Buddhism writings, but the walk around the loop path among the tablets does provide one with a sense of tranquility.

  • I walked a thousand steps, alone, in the shadow of the Big Buddha - what I learnt is the path is hard but you will reach a point (and I did) where the journey forward is as long as the journey back,. Then there is no turning back, much like life. Wisdom is in knowing that point!

  • Like Heaven on Earth . All-around valleys with clouds and big stubas digged in the land something mention in chinese on them. Minor steps to climb up and u will feel urself floating in clouds and there nearby a view point from there u can enjoy the sea view and floating ships if u could walk little more forward to same path from there u will find my place. And pics are also attached so enjoy..
