Po Lin Monastery and Ngong Ping Village
Down the 263 steps and a short walk along the path leads us to the Po Lin Monastery where we have reservations for a vegetarian lunch.
After the delicious lunch we were free to wander around and explore the buildings and property.
As we leave the monastery property we pass back through the entrance gate. The fog is still very thick around the Big Buddha. In the center of the hill you can faintly see the staircase leading up to the statue. It is not so hard to reach up and touch the clouds.
As we walk, we can see the clouds blowing by, getting thicker and thinner.
When we reach the end of the village main street, the clouds are clearing a little and we are at the 360 cable car terminal.
While waiting for our guide to buy and bring us the cable car tickets, I take the opportunity for one more zoom in on Tian Tan Buddha. This only 15 minutes after taking the picture of the stairway leading into the clouds.
