Tai To Yan (大刀屻)

(~9 kilometers)
4 hours

Difficulty: 7/10.

Cel phone coverage: Everywhere

Water needs: 2 liters. About 30% of the trail is shaded, so it will be more difficult in Summer.

Appreciation: 6.5/10

Transportation: Bus 64k from Tai Wo. Returning via Fanling MTR

Why it's worth it:

Take Exit 'A' (Tai Wo Plaza) out of the Tai Wo MTR station. Head left.

There will be a set of escalators on your right, leading to the bus stops.

The KMB 64k stop is on the other side of the first road lane. Don't go all the way on the other side because you'd take the 64k to Tai Po Market.

Yeah, that one...
Get off at Kadoorie Farm. Cross the street to the start of the trail.

People actually maintaining the trail! Amazing Hong Kong!

Follow Wo Hop Sehk here... Then it's pretty straightforward to the Fanling MTR station

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!
