Hong Kong is famous for its awesome hiking trails and we did quite a few; however this was my first on Lantau island and I must say I absolutely love it!

We walked from the Pak Kung Au bus stop, and hiked to the top of Lantau Peak before descending to the big buddha. It was physically demanding, but the trail was beautiful, and the feeling of accomplishment when standing on the top was worth it all. Would recommend to anyone able to do the hike!

Lantau Island, the biggest island in Hong Kong where the airport is located offers beautiful countryside hiking/walking trails to enjoy the scenic view of the island which is surrounded by water. Start from Discovery Bay which is accessible by Ferry from Hong Kong island or take the MTR (Mass Transit Railways) to Tung Chung station. Get off off and look... More

I started at the big buddha (Po Lin monastery, Ngong Ping 360 village), hit the 934m high Lantau peak and ended up at the Pak Kung Au bus stop). This trail is fantastic. Clouds were lying on the mountains, which ruined part of the view, but added to the Shire type of athmosphere. I felt like a bunch of orcs... More

Great view with a very nice trail going around Lantau Island. Lantau Peak is a really nice spot during clear weather. Under pollution, avoid to go their, you will be disappointed. Sunset Peak is easier than Lantau Peak but great for sunrise scenery. You just need to wake up around 4am and walk 2h to reach the summit. It's definitely... More

After reading an inspiring article from Lonely planet (Dragon’s back and beyond: the best hikes in Hong Kong) we were inspired to try some of the hikes in Hong Kong. The Lantau Trail’s section 5 and 6 (about 10 km combined) proved to be a very nice hike. The combination of open landscapes, great views of the surrounding forests and... More

Hidden behind the Po Lin monastery, is the awesome Lantau trail. Nice hiking trail with low difficulty. Would definitely recommend, if one has time (weather permitting) and is inclined to be away from the crowds at the Big Buddha/Po Lin monastery, which tends to be more touristy. Fairly easily doable with kids too! The hiking trails of HKG are a... More

I'm in pretty good shape but I was hiking 'against the clock' and almost turned back. I recommend trail segment #3 from Pak Kung Au to Lantau Peak to Ngong Ping, but I don't recommend starting it, as I did, at almost 4pm. I just barely made it to NP by 6pm when the cable car closes, and would have... More
