Hong Kong is famous for its awesome hiking trails and we did quite a few; however this was my first on Lantau island and I must say I absolutely love it! One after one after yet another one, hills crossing each other, covered with deep green...More

We walked from the Pak Kung Au bus stop, and hiked to the top of Lantau Peak before descending to the big buddha. It was physically demanding, but the trail was beautiful, and the feeling of accomplishment when standing on the top was worth it...More

I started at the big buddha (Po Lin monastery, Ngong Ping 360 village), hit the 934m high Lantau peak and ended up at the Pak Kung Au bus stop). This trail is fantastic. Clouds were lying on the mountains, which ruined part of the view,...More

Hidden behind the Po Lin monastery, is the awesome Lantau trail. Nice hiking trail with low difficulty. Would definitely recommend, if one has time (weather permitting) and is inclined to be away from the crowds at the Big Buddha/Po Lin monastery, which tends to be...More

Yes ... it's easily accessible from the village as the cable cars arrive to the village.
Hi, my husband and I plan to hike the full 70km of the Lantau Trail, starting at Mui Wo, in Sept. 2016. We were planning to do the hike in a 3 day period. I had been hoping to camp out when we needed to rest at night but am finding it difficult to locate appropriate advice on where sites are along the trail; everything tends to point to staying at accommodations along the way. If we need to stay in holiday accommodation/hotels/b&b (for example) where have other people who have done this hike stayed, or what kind of recommendations can be made to get our hike completed as near to our original idea as possible? Also, I am keen to hear from anyone who has done this hike in the month of September so I can be advised of what kind of weather we are likely to expect. Thanks.

Please note this is a trail / walk, not a hotel. Perhaps you can take a taxi top the drop off point
