It is described as sharpest peak in HongKong. Be prepared, lot of water. After a tough walk you enjoy the most rural scenery of Hong Kong. Decending is more difficult in my opinion. You can go down to Tai Long Beach. Walk back to Pak...More

Considered to be the toughest hike of Hong Kong, but don't let this scare you, it's definitely doable. Some parts you have to use your hands and feet to scramble up and down. The hike itself takes at least 5-6 hours to complete and al...More

This area of Sai Kung is absolutely stunning. Rolling hills, beach and really fresh air. I went on this hike with my wife. It starts very pleasant through a paved path, going through an old village. You may notice campsites all along the way. There...More

One of the best hiking experience in Hong Kong. The peak is really sharp and you may climb on 4 legs and go down the same way... Splendid view from the top... if you pass near an old village near the sea on the way...More
