The Basics

As you journey along the Wisdom Path, be sure to take your time with the views and installation, which is comprised of 38 tall wooden columns. They are arranged in an infinity pattern and follow the natural terrain of the site, with steps leading up and down the hillside.

It’s easiest to visit the Wisdom Path on a guided tour to Big Buddha and Po Lin Monastery, which usually includes a ride on the Ngong Ping 360 cable car and a visit to a fishing village. For the best value, book a travel pass combo, which often includes transportation, or book a multi-day attractions pass, which is good at more than a dozen attractions in Hong Kong and Macau.

The Heart Sutra

The Heart Sutra is a prayer that is revered by Buddhists, Confucians, and Taoists alike. It can be translated as “the heart of the perfection of wisdom.” The concept of emptiness is a key theme of the sutra, and it’s represented by the blank last column at the highest point of the Wisdom Path.
