This will be a moderate hike where we start and finish at the Tung Lung Chau piers. En route, we intend to check out the Tung Lung Chau Fort, built between 1662 and 1722 by order of Yang Lin, Viceroy of Guangdong and Guangxi, the fascinating 3000 year old historical carvings and rock formations, while walking with the views of azure blue waters and access to hidden beaches. The hike will take approximately 4 hours. After the hike, we will have options to have a late lunch snack (~ HKD 150 pp, cash only). Lunch is optional and can be swapped with chilled beers as well. We will catch the 5.30 pm (if not the 4 PM one) ferry back to Sai Wan Ho.
Return journey - HK $55 (cash only)
