今早到達昂平市集後, 便即去寶蓮寺買些素點心. 今天十分清涼舒適, 昂平的氣溫只有21度, 是遠足的好日子.
After we arrived Ngong Ping Market, we all rushed to Po Lin Monastery for some vegetarian dim sum and snacks.
The temperature @ Ngong Ping was just 21C this morning, sunny and windy also, really a perfect day for a walk.
向心經簡林的方向走, 很快會看到往寶林禪寺十方道場的指示牌, 那邊便是法門古道的方向.
We moved to the way for Wisdom Path (Pillars with "Prajna Paramita Heart Sutra" carved), then you will see a direction sign for "Po Lam Zen Monastery".
Just stick to the way for Po Lam Zen Monastery, that is the way for Fat Mun Ancient Path.
花老B 身後便是全港第二高的鳳凰山, 附近有一頭大牛在日光浴中.
Lantau Peak is just behind Tachibana san!! It is the 2nd highest mountain in HK, with a height of over 980m.
A big cow (or a mixed breed of cow and buffalo??) was having a sunbath near the entrance of Nei Lek Shan Country Path.
可見到"法門古道" 的木柱, 附近有昂平營地及彌勒山郊遊徑.
We could see the pillar for "Fat Mun Ancient Path", Ngong Ping Camp site and Nei Lek Shan Country Path are also nearby.
東山法門牌樓便是"法門古道" 的起步點, 後面則是南天福地.
See this stone archway, which is the start point of "Fat Mun Ancient Path".
Walk downhill via Fat Mun Ancient Path, you will see a pavilion as you are moving along the road.
一直前走, 便會看到農地, 這裡便是寶林禪寺十方道場的範圍.
You will see some farmlands as you move along the road, this place is part of Po Lam Zen Monastery.
Monks grow their own vegetables here.
終於到達寶林禪寺十方道場的門外, 這裡環境非常幽靜, 山明水秀, 寺院旁還有一座石製的佛像~~ "明心岩".
Now we were outside Po Lam Zen Monastery, with beautiful scenes everywhere. It is not a very big temple,
but the old Chinese style perfectly matches the forest scenes.
There is a stone Buddha statue near the temple, which is called "Ming Sun Rock" (Ming Sum means "understand my heart, understand how I feel")
This way for Tung Chung.
Po Tung Tower from Po Lam Zen Monastery.
A very very old monastery inside the bushes~~ Sheung Shue Kui (Twin trees' house.. a funny name)
As we were walking through the forest, sometimes we could see ruined monasteries inside the bushes.
We were @ Wah Yim Kok Monastery (sorry for trespassing)....
We were attracted by the colourful Buddha tower and the blue stone bridge near the stream!
Fat Lam Zen Monastery.
Tung Lam Monastery, is abandoned long time ago, now only this door is left.
Streams and bushes at the back of the ruined Tung Lam Monastery, a good place for ghost-hunting... :P
Going downhill for Shek Mun Kap.
Now @ Lo Han Monastery of Shek Mun Kap, we are going to have lunch here.
A walk @ Mok Ka Village after lunch.
