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.

  • An awesome trail, trek, walk, hike through a very scenic woody area of the Lantau island. We stumbled across this path whilst visiting the Big Buddha. We didn't manage the full walk but, did manage a 15-20 minute trek. After around 15 minutes we came to a clearing which exposed some amazing views. Views of the sea, mountains and hills.

  • A beautiful scenic trail with large prayer monuments made from tree trunks that were cut, inscribed with Buddhist Heart-Sutra. In total there are 38 inscribed timber columns, and they're placed in an ∞-shape to represent infinity. Each timber is about 10 metres high. It makes for a nice walk and seeing the monuments is definitely something awe-inspiring. These timber columns were completed in 2005.

  • A very short path to some breath taking views on a clear day. Would definitely recommend it as it's a short walk where you can then reach other trails. It's a really nice place to take photos as well + is quiet if you go earlier in the morning, great to get away from the noise of the city

  • Beautiful relaxed atmosphere, if you continue to Lantau peak be sure to bring plenty of water. This is also the harder side to climb from, easily the hardest trek we've ever done but we'll worth it. We couldn't walk the day after 😁

  • A small hike from the Po Lin monastry takes one on Wisdom path. Walking on it for a few minutes leads to a small, beautiful place between the mountains. I found the chirping sounds of birds really refreshing.
