Difficulty: 6/10. For distance and slight elevation gain.
Appreciation: 6/10. Too much of it is flat pavement.
Transportation: Take bus route 1 at Mui Wo Bus Terminal; or take bus route 11 in Tung Chung and get off just after the Shek Pik reservoir. Ferry back to Central from Mui-Wo
Why it's worth it:
|Get off the bus just after having crossed the Shek Pik reservoir dam. There are washrooms there so miht as well use them because there won't be any for a while. When done, wash your hands! ;-)|
Then cross the dam.
|Right after the dam, turn right|
|Trail is pretty straightforward; just follow the signs with the little hiking guys and you'll be fine. Yeah, high likeliness of these friendly hiking wild buffaloes...|
|About 2 hours in.|
|On the way down to Pui-O, about 5 hours in. |
Only place where I wasn't sure whether to go left or right. Go right!
|Arrived in Mui Wo, why not have a bite at China Beach Club (not China Bear by the pier, China Beach Club, by the beach, about 10 minutes walk from the pier). Red fish curry, Greek salad and apple crumble! Yum!|
