Pottinger Country Trail

Not everyone has the time or energy to walk all day. We put together ten great easy short walks in Hong Kong that can all be done in half a day.

This short trail has plenty of options and well worth the effort for the views alone. Starting in Chai Wan set out along Dragon Tail road. The first detour can take you to Cap Collins Rock Carvings and Lighthouse before making your way back to the main trail. Then head around the beautiful Ngan Wan to Cape Collins Road. Here again it is possible to detour off the trail down to Collins Battery before making your way up to Pottinger Peak Lookout. Here you will get sweeping views over Tung Lung Chau and the south entrance to Victoria Harbour. Returning to the Pottinger Country Trail you can either descend down to Big Wave Bay or continue round back to Chai Wan.


Get to the start: Start at the Chai Wan MTR and walk down to the se front then along to Siu Sai Wan Promenade.

Get home: From Big Wave Bay there is a mini bus to Shau Kei Wan MTR, from Chai Wan there is an MTR.
