There are no signages
May 2021 • Family
There are lack of signages. We asked the locals, who were not pleased that we talked to them. This is the not best communication we ever had with any locals. It could be slippery.

Country park with beautiful scenery.
Apr 2020 • Friends
Our hike up from Ng Tung Chai to the peak of Tai Mo Shan was past waterfalls and through quite dense forest and it’s probably the hardest we’ve yet done in HK just because it was so long. But it was definitely worth it! The waterfall and jungle scenery is fantastic and the views are also wonderful.

Panoramic view on the highest peak of Hong Kong (957m)
Jan 2020 • Friends
This is the highest peak in HK. It is accessible by buses, minibus or taxi. You can drive there but the parking spaces could be tight on weekends or holidays. It takes a bit of hiking time to get from the Castle Peak Road entrance where most bus stops drop you off. So, be prepared to bring some water and snack with you. The view from the peak is specular and your effort would be well paid off. Most visitors will come here for shooting the sun rise during new year too! Temperature up there will be much colder than urban area, and a warm jacket is suggested if you visit during early morning or late afternoon. Meanwhile I like visiting there during early afternoon with great view over HK. On clear days, the lookout gives a spectacular panoramic view of the Northern and Western New Territories, as well as the Yuen Long and Pat Heung plains. You can even see Shekou and Shenzhen on good days.

Great place to go for a hike
Jul 2019 • Family
We went here mainly to see the waterfalls. I was glad that we left the stroller behind because the path after while went from paved with steep hills to dirt and rock with steep hills and lots of steps.
You can get to a temple by a small waterfall without leaving the paved path, but the bigger one is further in. There are a lot of great views along the way too!!

Chinese Restaurant for Yum Cha
Nov 2018 • Solo
Talking about Tai Mo Shan which is the highest mountain in Hong Kong covering a huge area. Today, I would specify the Chinese Restaurant under the hillslope of Tai Mo Shan Country Park. It was a popular place for those driving down and enjoyed Chinese Yum Cha. Solely because there were self serviced restaurant that you had to make your own tea, get your own utilities for tea and most important of all, get your own food, i.e. dim sum, those dim sum after prepared, brought out to a common platform where you can choose your own favorites. At times, someone will announce what kind of dim sum had been prepared for your choice. A very strange experience regarding dim sum. After that, you can also picked some fresh vegetables nearby, freshly prepared from the fields that you can bring home for another big feast.

The view from the top is REALLY WORTH IT
Apr 2018 • Friends
One of another great experiences .We’re lucky enough to be here for hiking and doing some adventures . The hiking trail was so intense but the view was really amazing.It was quite challenging but we’re so happy to reach the top view . We’re gonna back for sure . Just take MTR to Tsuen Wan exit A , then take a bus number 51 and get off at Kam Sheung Road alight Country Park Station . Head back the way you came approximately 20 minutes until reach Tai Mo Shan Road .

Nice Hike
Jul 2018 • Friends
Joined a group of hikers from HK to do this hike since I am a foreigner. Though it was shared to us that is a easy hike, I still find it. Challenge for me a novice hiker. Took me a while to travel to Tai Mo Shan from my hotel, finally reached TSuen Wan West exit E1, took bus 51 and alight outside the main road, walk a few meters pass the Tai Mo Shan Country club and our hike begin. A walk uphill, the view was beautiful, we reached a part that looks like a cliff and took many pictures, was supposed to see sunset, did not managed the view.

Nice hike from Tai Mo Shan to Tai Po
Oct 2017 • Solo
I hiked from Tai Mo Shan country park to Tai Po via Lead Mine Pass. I was lucky to experience clear weather, as Tai Mo Shan is known to have frequent fogs. I could see HK Island & Lantau Island to the south and Shenzhen to the north. I took the paved road up Tai Mo Shan and it was a gradual and easy climb. The summit is occupied by a radio station and out of bound to the public. From Tai Mo Shan to Lead Mine Pass, the initial portion is paved but the subsequent portion is rough and rocky. The entire hike took me around 4 hours.

The country park entrance can be reached by bus 51 from Tsuen Wan West and Tsuen Wan MTR. After a 5 minute hike uphill from the entrance, there is the Tai Mo Shan Country Park visitor centre where you can see maps of the park and exhibits on biodiversity and climate change.

Ma On Shan Country Park - nice park and decent hiking trail
Sep 2015 • Solo
The Ma On Shan Country Park is a nature area just past the residential community of Ma On Shan that includes 2880 hectares of outdoor area and hiking trails. This is a popular outdoor area for local residents and a place that is convenient for visitors to Hong Kong seeking rural locations to spend time during their holidays to HK.

There is a BBQ area at the base of the main Ma On Shan Country Park trail, where you can have a cookout with friends and family. Most convenient transportation is by way of taxi or minibus NR84 from nearby Sunshine City in town.

The main hiking trail is mild to moderate in difficulty, as it includes some quickly ascending areas and it takes approximately 3 to 3.5 hours to complete, depending on how many times you stop for views, which can be quite nice.

You pass through an old miner camp which is interesting and will notice the bare terrain as you start ascending the trail. As you approach higher elevations, there are some nice views of the seaside, the rugged face of the nearby peaks and village houses below.

For those seeking more challenging climbs, consider the MacLehose Trail, which you link up with at Stage 4 as part of the Ma On Shan Trail. This takes on the difficult parts of the ascend up the mountain peak. If you are interested in hikes in more wooded areas, consider those in the nearby Sai Kung Country Park not far from this location.

Overall, in cities like Hong Kong, it is nice to have country parks with hiking trails available near to the city. This is one of several good spots for hiking in this area of the New Territories that is accessible for tourists.
