Time of year
This year we hiked Lantau Trail Sections 5 and 6, section 5 running from Sham Wat Road to Man Cheung Po and 6 from Man Cheung Po to Tai O. Make sure you take good hiking shoes with a good profile, as the trail goes up and down a lot. Much of the trail is in the open, so also…
The trails are well maintained with ample restroom facilities along the way! Good way to exercise and explore the island at the same time!
If you are lucky enough to have a full day to escape the stress of downtown Hong Kong, Lantau is your destination. Do go there with the cable car, a 25 minutes ride from Tung Chung MTR station, the views are breathtaking. Visit the Big Buddha and be sure to allow some extra time…
We took the ferry to one boat terminal and walked across the island to take the boat back from the other terminal. The walk was longer than advertised or perhaps we are just old and slow. Allow 2 hours to have a leisurely walk .
Wonderful but challenging trail. Stunning views. We did it in a bout 5 hours during CNY 2016. Bring enough water!!!
