MacLehose Trail, Hong Kong

4.6
#3 of 20 in Trails in Hong Kong
An excellent antidote to the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong, wind through valleys, rugged peaks, and pristine ocean coastlines on your hike along MacLehose Trail. Spanning a total of 100 km (62 mi), this is not a trail to complete in one day: choose one of the smaller, more manageable sections. Please be aware that not all parts of the trail have public transport, so research your chosen route well, and pack lots of water and food. To visit MacLehose Trail and get the most from your holiday in Hong Kong, create itinerary details personal to you using our Hong Kong day trip app .

  • From the Tuen Mun West railway station, the whole line left 4 minutes, it is not difficult. There are instructions along the way. The scenery is beautiful. It's good to fall in the mountains. If it seems like my first school, preferably in the weekend line, along the way there are many rows of mountain friends, there is a photo. Next time.

Where to stay in Hong Kong

Head to Tsim Sha Tsui for the main tourist section of Hong Kong, where it's easy to find reasonably priced accommodations to suit your particular requirements, with more expensive hotels closer to the water and side streets offering budget hostels. You can also consider Hong Kong Island, which offers easy links to the mainland via its ferry and train lines. Chain hotels sit in the northern section of the island, where luxury and budget options remain available.
