East Lantau Island

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.

Plover Cove

In the last of five recommended Hong Kong walks we a hike 13 KM loop, starting at the Bride’s pool, making our way to Sam A Wan before crossing over to the old Hakka village of Lai Chi Wo. On the way back we climb the Tiu Tang Lung path before cutting back and returning to the the Bride’s pool. Thanks to Jurgen Looman for the recommendation and for coming along to show us the way and help us film.

Ap Lei Chau

In the fourth of recommended Hong Kong walks we hike 8 KM around the small island of Ap Lei Chau, starting along the promenades of Ap Lei Chau park and South Horizons and then working our way up to the hill above the Lei Tung estate before ascending Yuk Kwai Shan also known as Mount Johnston. From the top we take the steep rope decent down to a sand causeway and over to the islet of Ap Lei Pei, which we cross to the southern most point. Thanks to Tata Mataganas for the recommendation.

Lam Tsuen Country Park

In the third of recommended Hong Kong walks we take on a 16 KM hike starting in Way Shing Tsuen and climbing slowly to Kai Kung Long before walking the ridge along and down to Fan Jam Road. Crossing the road we then head up the second ridge of the Lam Tsuen Country park all the way to Tai to Yan before a final ridge walk and decent to Wan Fung Yuen.

Mount Stenhouse loop

In the first of recommended Hong Kong walks we take on a 15 KM hike starting at Pak Kok village in the north of Lamma island and make our way along the spine of the island to Sok Kwu Wan before ascending Mount Stenhouse. From the summit it’s an easy walk down to Lo So Shing beach and then we make our way along the western edge of the island through Yung Shue Wan and round the headland back to Pak Kok to take the ferry back home.
