Spotlight on Hong Kong trails

Institute members Juni Ngai, General Manager of eBRAM Centre Limited, and Gordon Liu, who is retired, recommend their favourite Hong Kong trails to hike

Kai Kung Leng

Located in Hong Kong’s northern New Territories and within Lam Tsuen Country Park is Kai Kung Leng. The hike up to the 585-metre mountain peak is challenging, but promises stunning views. “Kai Kung Leng is a mountain trail with close to no trees so expect little shade and bring an umbrella and lots of water in case it gets too hot. Otherwise, there is great scenery throughout the whole trail,” says Ngai. Liu says: “I recommend Kai Kung Leng trail for intermediate hikers. Walking up this trail gives you the feeling of hiking in the Alps. At the summit, you will have a full view of Shenzhen, Kam Tin, Yuen Long and Tai Mo Shan.”

Tai Cham Koi

“I recommend Tai Cham Koi to Luk Wu Country Trail in Sai Kung. Though walking up Tai Cham Koi is quite tough and will make you sweat, the 360-degree view it offers at the top is very rewarding. You’ll also catch a glimpse of High Island Reservoir. Attempt this hike on a clear day that isn’t too humid to capture the best photos,” says Liu.

Sunset Peak

“For those who are physically fit and seeking a real challenge, try hiking the Wong Lung Hang Country Trail to Sunset Peak on Lantau Island. It is one of the most difficult trails to tackle in Hong Kong. I personally do time trials on this particular trail when I want to give my physical endurance a boost,” says Ngai.
