Lantau Island: Sunset Peak - Climb Hong Kong's Third Highest Mountain and Explore the Mysterious Stone Houses.

There are many hiking trails on Lantau Island, making it a great destination for spring outings. This time, I climbed Hong Kong's third highest peak, the 869-meter tall Sunset Peak, and then headed to Mui Wo. Many online hiking guides suggest that Sunset Peak is suitable for beginners, but I feel that many of them underestimate the difficulty of Sunset Peak. The scenery along the trail is indeed beautiful, inspiring awe. Walking through it, with the gentle mountain breeze, one feels a serene sense of returning to nature. However, there are many stairs and they are quite steep. Reaching the summit is not so easy and one must proceed according to their ability. As you approach the summit, you see a spread of small stone houses on the hillside. These stone houses, known as 'Lantau Mountain Camp,' were built in the 1920s as holiday cottages for missionaries. From the hillside, you can enjoy a panoramic view of the grasslands and feel the mysterious charm of Sunset Peak. Location: Sunset Peak How to get there: From the Tung Chung Station Bus Terminus outside Exit B of the MTR Tung Chung Station, take bus no. 3M, 11, 11A, or 23 to the highest point on Tung Chung Road, Pak Kung Au. How to return: From Mui Wo, take a ferry to Central, or take bus no. 3M from the Mui Wo Bus Terminus back to Tung Chung Station Bus Terminus.
