• Remote Lantau

  • We start this interesting day out with a lovely boat journey. We visit a remote area to bring you a longer hike without the big ascents that are common when hiking Hong Kong. We believe you will be engaged during this hike as we move from farms and rice paddies through to remote abandoned Hakka villages, coastal paths, beaches and even a fabulous fort dating back to around 1729. Sadly there is an environmental issue on this hike that is distressing; some of the beaches have been ruined by rubbish. Seeing first-hand the true impact of discarding rubbish into the sea especially plastics and Styrofoam might help spread the word a little and educate people. Aside from this, the hike is a wonderful day. Because the hike avoids the bigger ascents and we maintain a steady pace, we have found this to be a very sociable hike.
