  • This is our first choice for a trip to focus on Unseen. Take the bus and start hiking. It takes about 2 hours. Do not forget to enter the bathroom in the entrance and prepare the dessert with the water. 2-Way down The first is to go down to the beach and the other way to the village is to enjoy hiking.

  • Challenging trail, especially due to the storm that we experienced. But stunning view and revolving moment once you have reached the Lantau Peak. I absolutely recommend this trail!
  • Great trail for all levels of hikers! Has a lot of ups and downs, with some intense incline but nothing overly difficult technique-wise. Has some of the best views of any trail in Hong Kong, save maybe Sai Kung. Check it out!
  • Great hike up to go Lantau peak 934m and Sunset peak 869m (tallest twin peaks of Lantau) clear defined paths lots of people go on the weekends can't get los, but lots of stairs. No water refill nor toilet except at PakKunAu on Tung Chung Road
  • Awesome, challenging hiking train
  • I was having a good time hiking in lantau trail. The trail they called NORTH HEAVEN'S GATE. IT WAS steep and the path was challenging need to step carefully cause one wrong step will make u fall. But that risky part are not long so no worries. In that trail you can see the dripping cave which is amazing in its own way. There's rocks formation that they named as soldier rock too. And many more to see. So folks go and see😂
