For magnificent views, follow the trail to Lantau Peak, the second highest summit in Hong Kong.

  • If you have kids, do not attempt this. Unless you want to carry the child on you. Also, get plenty of water and snacks. And please, take that plastic with you. We saw too many discarded plastic here.  more »
  • It was misty. We did not lose our footing. For some, it could be a real hazard if and when they do. The summit is massive.  more »
  • Challenging trail, especially due to the storm that we experienced. But stunning view and revolving moment once you have reached the Lantau Peak. I absolutely recommend this trail!
  • Great trail for all levels of hikers! Has a lot of ups and downs, with some intense incline but nothing overly difficult technique-wise. Has some of the best views of any trail in Hong Kong, save maybe Sai Kung. Check it out!
