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.
