Sections 1 & 2 of the Lantau Trail

In the first of a new series covering the much overlooked Lantau Long Trail we take on sections one and two. Sections one is a simple road walk from Mui Wo up to Nam Shan. Here you leave the road and start a long climb up to Sunset peak on section two before descending down to the Tung Chung road.

The 70 km Lantau trail takes you on a loop from Mui Wo West over Sunset and Lantau peaks before a ridge walk to Tai O. From there you follow the coast around the south of the island back to Mui Wo.

Often neglected, the 78 kilometer Wilson trail, is every bit as spectacular and challenging, as Hong Kong’s better known walkways, argues China Daily reporter D J Clark. The trail starts in the far south of Hong Kong island and runs all the way up to the Shenzhen border passing through eight country parks. From the specular views over Victoria Harbor to the monkey lands of Lion Rock park and up along the steep ridges of Pat Sin Leng this trail has something for every outdoor enthusiast.
