Myself and my husband did this beautiful trek this morning. On reading previous reviews we weren’t really sure what to expect difficulty wise, but I would say it was a easy-moderate hike but so so worth it. We started off by getting the mtr island...More

Certainly a must do hike in Hk. Don’t just go to Hk for food and shopping, there is something else worth going to Hk for- hiking!

What an excellent walk. Fantastic views, easy to find your way. We got a taxi to the start of the walk and from the end as it was easier than waiting on buses. Maximised our time on the island as well.

Start early in the morning (7am or 8am) before it gets too warm, after a few minutes you will already have some of the best views you will have while hiking! At Shau Kei Wan MTR station, just outside you can catch bus 9 and...More

if you with kids you don't have to traverse the whole trail. You could go up the first mountain only - beautiful views from there all around. And then come down back to the bus stop, the same way. It took us less than 1.5... More
