East Lantau Island – recommended walks

In the first of a new Drone and Phone season of recommended walks, DJ and Jack take on East Lantau Island. Starting in Mui Wo, they took a trail up through Tung Wan Tau before a much gentler decent to the Our Lady of Joy Abbey. From there a path takes them down to the coast before walking into Discovery Bay. From there they headed back up to the ridge that runs above and down to Sunny Bay to complete a relatively easy 14 km hike. Many thanks to Doug Treasure for the recommendation.
