There are tonnes of amazing hikes around Hong Kong. We did a six-hour hike through Ma On Shan, crossing varied landscapes, including streams, waterfalls, scrubland, rainforest and volcanic rock formations in Luk Chau Rock Forest. It was incredible. Lantau also has a number of fabulous hiking trails like Man Cheung Po and Dragon’s Jaw, which are really picturesque and have a number of stunning waterfalls to cool down in afterwards.
Best Outdoor Activity
We started coasteering and canyoning with HK Outsider—a cool community of adventurous people—and have discovered some incredible off-the-beaten-track parts of Hong Kong as a result. We abseil down waterfalls, jump off cliffs, scramble up through streams and go night-hiking in various locations around Hong Kong. It’s been a silver lining exploring Hong Kong in this travel restricted period.
