Enjoyable hike with different possible routes. You can do a shorter hike up to the peak, then back down, or you can hike across the ridge (both starting and ending points have public transportation).

It's very easy to reach the starting point using the MTR and public buses. From the top you can view the beautiful beaches( Shek O and Big Wave). You have sign posts along the way to guide you. There are two options for the hike....More

One of the most basic trail for those who want to try out hiking in HK. It is rocky and steep along the trail but the route pretty much is straight forward. We went on a weekdays so it is not crowded. Pretty accessible too....More

Great hike, about easy to medium difficulty. I went on a Sunday which was a mistake. Go on a weekday so there’s less people. Pack water and a snack. There are picnic areas if you’re interested. Just follow the signs and you’ll be fine. It’s...More

My wife and I did this hike in late March 2019. Lots of directions, even with pictures, online. We took the MTR to Chai Wan and walked from there. It was about 10-15 minutes to get to the cemetary where there were a billion steps...More

Beautiful views and very well signaled. We did approximately 3 hours from Shek O road and Cape Collison to Shek O beach (so we did it backwards). It is very hot and humid so be prepared with a lot of water. Also there are spiders,...More
