This blog is on one of my favourite hikes on Hong Kong Island. It’s a very picturesque hike with lush greenery and lovely rock structures and of course the beautiful rock formation of a Dinosaur head chewing grass.
Difficulty: 4/10 (this is a hike that you can do with kids too, they will enjoy it)
How to get there: From Sai Wan Ho MTR exit A turn to your left and cross the road. You will pass the Sai Wan Ho market where loads of vendors sell fish, meat, vegetables and fruits. Keep walking. Once you come to a Park and shop, cross the road and take the escalators that go upwards. You will reach the top and sight the IKEA Pick up point, exit there and turn right and keep walking up the slope.
Taking the escalator through that mini mall saves time and you can reach the trail faster.
There are a few steps so it could be a bit tiring for newcomers or for those who don’t like climbing. But do try, you will enjoy as there’s a lovely sitting area where you can enjoy a cup of hot tea and some sandwiches whilst you take in the views.
Enjoy the blue skies, different shades of blue…
And that’s the end of the hike.
Do try it, it is really lovely….bliss in the mountains amidst nature.
