Lantau Trail Sections 7 – 9
The Lantau Trail is a 70-kilometer long-distance hiking trail located on Lantau Island in Hong Kong. It is known for its diverse and scenic landscapes, ranging from coastal areas and beaches to mountainous terrain and forests.
Section seven is a relatively flat coastal path that takes you around the remote south west corner of the island, onto a catch water. It has amazing costal views for much of the way and takes you though ancient farms, past temples, secluded beaches, an old fort and several half abandoned villages.
Section eight is along a catch water and down to the Shek Pik Reservoir which you cross in section nine before taking on a forested path in a horseshoe that passes Lo Lei Wan beach and then comes back to the South Lantau Road. The three sections are long but relatively flat for much of the way.
