Dog Teeth Range (Kau Nga Ling), is one of the most famous hiking trail for extreme hikers. This is preferably not for novice but a great deal of challenge for intermediate hiker/s. It's perilous but intriguing scenery earns the fame for many thrill seekers. It is located at the south side of Lantau Peak (#2 Highest Peak in Hong Kong). At the moment, there are no tall object standing at the the south side, so you can enjoy the fascinating panorama of Southern Lantau while doing hiking. As the name suggests, The Dog Teeth Range looks like dog's teeth in terms of shape and sharpness.

If your attempting this trail, you must take a great deal on safety. Good Luck!

Taken from afar but this is just to let you prepare on what's your Entry Point looks like.

This is an island water storage facility located at Lantau South Country Park. With a capacity of 738.000,000 cubic feet, it was once the largest reservoir in Hong Kong but now it just the third largest Reservoir after High Island & Plover Cove.

This end point is the gateway of the Lantau Peak Trail which is adjacent to the
Phoenix Statue and the Wisdom Path (Wisdom Path traces a series of 38 wooden steles containing verses from the centuries-old Heart Sutra; one of the world's best-known prayers revered by Confucians, Buddhists and Taoists alike).
