Ngong Ping, with only the Po Lin Monastery located before the Tian Tan Giant Buddha was built, could only be reached by bus travelling to and from Tai O. However in 1993 after the construction of the world’s largest bronze Giant seated Buddha, many locals and foreign visitors have traveled here. Moreover, since the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car System connecting Tung Chung started operation in 2006, Ngong Ping has become a must see attraction for tourists. Recently in Ngong Ping, a number of scenery spots are included such as Ngong Ping village and the Wisdom Path.

The most convenient way for visitors to travel to Ngong Ping is by taking the Kwoon Chung Inclusive weekend recreational rehabus service from designated bus stops or Ngong Ping 360 cable car at Tung Chung town center or by taking the New Lantao Bus No. 23. However, since the New Lantao Bus No. 23 does not have low floor facilities, it is better for wheelchair users to choose the Ngong Ping 360 cable car or Kwoon Chung Inclusive weekend recreational rehabus service. There are also buses from Mui Wo or Tai O to Ngong Ping, which are also without ‘low floor facilities’.

After crossing the road, the lift leading to the cable car terminus ticket office could be seen. Inside the terminus, access ramp is provided for wheelchair users to reach the ticket office, accessory shops and boarding area, and accessible toilets are also provided. While the cable car moves stably for the 25 minutes ride, visitors can enjoy the panoramic scenery of the Hong Kong International Airport and Tung Chung area. Recently there is also the Crystal Cabin provided for the choice of passengers.


Short comments: The passages and boarding position inside the cable car terminus are convenient for wheelchair users, while staffs would provide assistance for the boarding and alighting of wheelchair users. However, it could be crowded during holidays when there are more tourists.

There are various shops selling special souvenirs and foods, most are with spacious inner area and without steps at the entrance.

The Po Lin Monastery, Tian Tan Giant Buddha Statue

After leaving the Ngong Ping Village, pass the bus terminus will reach the Po Lin Monastery and the Tian Tan Giant Buddha statue. The Tian Tan Giant Buddha Statue is the largest bronze seating Buddha in the world built by Po Lin Monastry in 1970. Situated on the Muk Yue Peak, the Statue is made of bronze with a weight of about 250 tons and a height of 34 m. The Base of the Buddha is an exhibition hall where the Sarira (in Sanskrit meaning Buddhist relics) of Lord Shakyamuni from Indiais worshipped. Because Tian Tan Giant Buddha is located at the top of the mountain, visitors have to climb up several hundreds of steps to reach the base of the Statue. It is suggested that wheelchair users can visit various temples of the monastery, of which some are having an even entrance, while some large temple like Main Shrine Hall of Buddha (the Hall of Great Hero) located at higher level are having entrance with steps. Inside the temple is a vegetarian restaurant which visitors have to buy coupons at the ticket office near the Buddha Statue before being served.  


Short comments: Although the Po Lin Monastery and the Tian Tan Giant Buddha Statue are popular tourist spot, due to design problem, there is usually long flight of steps before the entrance. This makes many disabled persons and elderly can only “tour” from far away.


Address: Po Lin Monastery, Ngong Ping Road

The Wisdom Path (The Heart Sutra Inscription)

After leaving the Po Lin Monastery, visitors can go along a small path near the Giant Buddha to reach the Wisdom Path in about twenty minutes. The Wisdom Path is the world’s largest outdoor wood crafted sutra-series, formed by 38 wooden pillars inscribed with Maha-Prajna-paramita-hydaya-sutra, the Heart Sutra. Since the Path is built along the mountain, visitors have to go up steps to tour the whole sutra-series. Next to the Wisdom Path is the ‘Sunrise On Lantau Trail’ leading to the Lantau Peak. However, the path is very steep and narrow that disabled persons need to take great care.


Short comments: Roads leading to the Wisdom Path are broad and level that wheelchair users can go along at ease. While inside the Po Lin Monastery is a bit short of accessible toilets, visitors may choose the one before entering the path leading to the Wisdom Path or that outside the bus stop.
