Lantau Trail Section 1 & 2

Appreciation: 8/10 overall. Section 1 is pure waste of time but about 1 hour in (4km) and into Section 2, great vistas are well worth the climb.

Why it's worth it: 

827m elevation gain
Total: 3 hours

Garmin GPS route:


Cel phone coverage: Coverage everywhere.

Water needs: 1 liter.

Transportation: Ferry to Mui Wo from Central pier. Return via 11, 23, 3M right at the end of section 2 to either Tung Chung where you can take the MTR, or Mui Wo where you can ferry back. 

Head right upon disambarking the Mui Wo ferry.

Start climbing along the road by the roundabout.

You will see this sign. Follow it for until you reach the Section 2 trail head.

Section 2 trail head. There's a drink vending machine and toilet in case you forgot.

The rest is trivial. No real need for further details as all the intersections have clear indications. Just follow Pak Kung Au via Sunset Peak

Please, don't litter!

Hiking is about communion with nature. So please pickup after yourself. There's no excuse to leave plastic bags, water bottles or any rubbish on or around the trails; if you managed to bring it, you can manage to bring it back!
