Lei Tung Estate>Mountain Johnston>(Ap Lei Pai>Ap Lei Chau Hung Shing Temple Pier – by boat)

Transport: Take MTR to Lei Tung Station or take bus no. 96, 97 or 98 to Lei Tung Estate

Feeling: This is a highly accessible trail, the starting point of the hike is just next to the MTR station. The view at Mountain Johnston is gorgeous and I am happy to visit the tombolo and the lighthouse at Ap Lei Pai. May try to walk along the shore back to Ap Lei Chau next time.

Distance and Average Hiking Time: 1.83km, around two hours

** Points to note:  No shades, steep descend from Mountain Johnson to tombolo, most parts of the hike are quite strenuous, not suitable for inexperienced hikers or people with acrophobia, not suggest to go in Summer time.

需時:約三個半小時 / 5.51km
**注意:出發前請查閱大埔滘潮汐預報。上走114山頭的路徑清晰不難走,且有非常好的景觀。下山返回水茫田則要找路,不時穿越密林,並有甚多蜘蛛網及塌樹。

Sam Mun Tsai>Yim Tin Tsai>Shui Mong Tin>Ma Shi Chau Nature Trail>Ma Yiu>Hilltop 114>Ngau Liu Ha>(Shui Mong Tin>Sam Mun Tsai Pier – boat trip)

Transport:  Take bus no. 74K or minibus no. 20K (near MTR Tai Po Market Station), get off at Sam Mun Tsai / Return by taking the same bus or minibus.

Distance and Average Hiking Time: 5.51km, three and a half hours

** Point to note: Please check the Tai Po Kau predicted tidal levels at Hong Kong Observatory’s website before you set off. The path to the hill top is clear but need to find way back to Shui Mong Tin and have to walk through a bit dense vegetation with lots of spider webs and fallen trees.

Transport:  Take MTR to Sunny Bay Station and walk to Luk Keng Tsuen / Return by taking MTR at Sunny Bay Station.

Distance and Average Hiking Time: 7.15km, around three and a half hours

** Points to note:  Please check the predicted tidal levels at Hong Kong Observatory’s website.

**注意:鹿頸から登山道はちょっとわかりにくく、密林を通す必要もあるので、経験者と一緒に、またはハイキングのアプリを使用。初心者にはむいてないと思って、十分補充とギアー (手袋、傘、ハイキングスティックなど) を用意してください。
