It was a steep hike, need lot of energy. Not recommended for a first time hiker. I reached the summit in 2hrs. (Without any support, but better you take your hiking stick unless you are experienced and seasoned with wasting energy) On the summit you can find the camping chalets, which you can book in advanced. It was a scenic hike with the views of all the sides of Hong Kong. On top You can visit Heaven's Lake and RMs rock. …

Lantau Island is the largest of Hong Kong's more than 250 islands. It is located to the west of Hong Kong Island and is almost twice its size at nearly 147 sq. kilometres. The island is mostly protected country park and rural lands and is considered a major 'green lung' of Hong Kong. It is also the location of Hong Kong International Airport and several major sightseeing venues and locations. Lantau is where you will find Hong Kong Disneyland, the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car, Village and Giant Buddha. The island is also home to numerous historical fishing villages, most notably Tai O which is west of the town of Tung Chung. This is a neat heritage location and place to view the rare pink dolphins which reside in the coastal waters nearby. The island is also known for its beaches, particularly at the village of Mui Wo as well as the long and beautiful stretches of sandy shores at Cheung Sha. There are two country parks, Lantau North and Lantau South which protect nearly half of the island, encompassing numerous peaks, valleys, woodlands, coastline and HK's largest reservoir. The island also hosts some of Hong Kong's most popular hiking spots including the famous Sunset Peak Trail and the it 70-km Lantau Trail. While travel around Lantau Island is quite limited compared to Hong Kong Island and the Kowloon Peninsula, there is regular and frequent transportation to the island by way of MTR, Airport Express, public buses as well as ferries to the village of Mui Wo in the south. There are limited accommodation options on Lantau with a few properties available at Mui Wo, Tai O and Tung Chung being the most accessible. You'll find restaurants, supermarkets, convenient stores and basic services such as banks and cash points at Mui Wo, Tung Chung and the Ngong Ping 360 Village and casual eateries and stores in other villages around the island in areas frequented by tourists.…

There's so much to do here. Lantau Peak, Sunset Peak, Big Buddha, Tai O, just to name a few. Definitely worth spending an entire day or weekend exploring.

Great place to do hiking, we went back there now several times and each time a different trail. Not very difficult, but good exercise.

It's easy to get around HK and see the sights. Taking the cable car to see the Tian Tan Buddha provided long range views of the surrounding area.
