• Lantau Country Park

  • Ladies and Gentlemen this hike offers all the things that top my personal list of what I most like from hiking: A fabulous feeling of solitude peace and tranquility. Immerse yourself in the beautiful winding trails which one minute are open, with beach views and then the next, under canopy with the sunlight shimmering through the trees. For these reasons this hike most definitely sits in my top 10. I am not going to tell you anymore other than around every corner of this walk is another surprise to entertain the mind and senses. The first 7km of this walk is predominately flat so anyone with minimal hiking experience can achieve it. There is an easy option to leave the walk at this point before we head into the last 5km and some ascent which is a little steep but rewarding as the hike continues to deliver on scenery and views. You will not be disappointed and I will be more than happy to lead this hike time and again.
