Recommendation by Lemi
Reach new heights at Hong Kong’s highest peak! Located roughly at the center of New Territories, Tai Mo Shan, which means “Big Hat Mountain,” is a 3,140-feet extinct volcano. Its summit is the coldest place in the area—with temperatures reaching near zero—and is one of the few places to see frost in Hong Kong during winter. For beginners, traverse through Tai Mo Shan Hiking Practice Trail—a one kilometer route passing through scenic woodlands and even a barbecue area. It takes about 30 minutes to walk the trail which has several test facilities that teach hiking and basic safety principles. The Maclehose Trail (Stage 8)—a 10 kilometer hike that starts at Lead Mine Pass and ends at Route Twisk—is for more experienced hikers to get a thrill out of. Enjoy the scenic view and take beautiful photos of the Kowloon Reservoirs, Tsuen Wan Skyline, and the Hong Kong Observatory located at the top.
