Tung Chung to Mui Wo

September 8, 2012

I discovered this trail accidentally when I ran earlier from Tung Chung. It’s called HONG KONG OLYMPIC TRAIL which is quite new. Today we hike from Tung Chung to Mui Wo.

It’s about 9k with elevation of 180m, good for family hiking.

A “tourist attraction” we didn’t expect to see on the way.

Last “point of interest”.

We took 2 hours, we could have ran it except the steep sections going up hill. The good part of it was that we met no dogs.
