I didn't give this trail 5 stars because it is very crowded due to being so popular and easy to get too. If you go during a day you'd really encounter a human traffic jam on a trail because the pathways are very narrow and...More

I’m ashamed to say that I’ve only just got round to this after living in HK for over a year, but I’m glad I now have: it’s a very nice half-day trip and will reward walkers with some lovely views over the hills, bays and...More

I believe its best to check the weather forecast nearing to your hiking date. Typhoon is not a norm, hence u shouldn't be too worried about that. But well, if it rains, definitely not advisable.
