Hong Kong Trail Sections 5 & 6

The Hong Kong Trail is a 50 kilometer hiking trail that runs through the heart of Hong Kong’s country parks and forests, showcasing the natural beauty of the region. 
The fifth and sixth sections of the Hong Kong Trail are very different from those that precede it. Section five starts with a steep climb up to Jardine’s Lookout where Victoria Harbour opens up below you. Following a ridge the section continues to provide great views both north and south all the way up to Mount Butler. From there is a fast descent through the Tai Tam Country Park, passing the upper and lower Tai Tam Reservoirs.


Get to the start, take bus route 6 from Central Exchange Square, and get off at Hong Kong Tennis Centre in Aberdeen.  Walk 3 mins to Wong Nai Chung Gap.

From the petrol station on Wong Wai Chung Gap Road, hike up towards Park View. Before you reach the housing estate, turn left onto the Hong Kong Trail.

Get home:

From Tai Tam Tuk Reservoir, take bus route 14 and get off at Sai Wan Ho MTR Station.
