This is by far the most natural, the most extreme and challenging trail along side Lantau Peak., South Lo Hon Tower Trail is 100% natural from its starting point up to the end of the trail and only an expert and experienced Hiker/s are allowed to take the challenges of this trail as it is perilous to Novice Hikers. I highly suggest that if any Hiker/s, Team or Organization wish to try out this must consider the danger involve. 

Trail Info:
-Difficulty: 4.5 / 5
-Duration: 5 hrs (from: Main Entry Point)

- (Note: If your an expert Hiker you must know what to bring on this type of hiking expedition).

-Via Mini Bus #34: Ride for about 15mins from Tung Chung Bus Terminal until u reach the Shuttle Bus Terminal at SHEK MUN KAP Village

-Via Foot: Walk for about 30mins from Tung Chung MTR Station to Shek Mun Kap.

-Via Taxi: 10 mins from Tung Chung Taxi Terminal along Exit A (Blue Taxi).


If you decide to take this Shuttle Bus 34 from Tung Chung Bus Terminal, you will get off at the Shuttle Bus  Terminal at SHEK MUN KAP Village.

Follow the path towards Lo Hon Monastery uphill - for some, this is an easy walk along the pavement!

While walking uphill, this is what your going to if it's teasing or inviting a hiker/s!

This Clean & Clear Stream is very relaxing and refreshing  for a Pit-Stop. 

This is still part of warm-up stage as you work your way towards the Main Starting Point.

Don't get lost and follow the leader!

When you notice these signage on the left side then you are almost close to the
Main Entry Point...try to save energy on this pavement!

As you can see, the Expert Hikers are gathered together to utter their salutation
before taking their first step at the main entry point. 

...and the ACTION BEGIN!

Negotiate carefully along these moving rocks!

Gathering Station I
Here is where everyone can have a bit of rest and refueling, have some power bar or
anything to regain your energy back and after a short break, that clearly marked trail (in red)  is going to be you next Hiking, Climbing and Bouldering slow and careful here!

This is what I meant about steep climb...a slight  Bouldering / Climbing to negotiate with.

Always try to keep your head up and look for your bearing point, that
clearly marked location / destination is... LO HON TOWER.

Gathering Section II
This is flat and open section where everyone can have power meal
 before taking another non-stop push towards "ROOSTER ROCK".

Using a little bit of imagination and you can easily determine that
this rock formation really like a Rooster's Head.

Final push after the Rooster Rock and U will get to Lo Hon Tower & The Lo Hon Tower Cave. Be sure to get inside the caving and pay a little tribute! Inside the caving, U can see a lot of hikers ribbon to identify that a certain team of hikers has been there. The Clearly marked route will take you towards your choice of "END POINT". 

Here are the Team of Mountaineers that I cater inside the Cave.

Here's what it may look like when U take a photo of someone inside the Cave. The Hiker pointing on the
right is LO HON TOWER & on the left side is the wall of LO HON TOWER CAVE.

After choosing our destination and meet the other hikers along the way....we decided to climb on top of
LO HON TOWER CAVE and Cross-Over towards LANTAU PEAK.
(other Mountaineers Tackled North Lo Hon Tower Trail)

When you reach the Summit of Lantau Peak, there are plenty of choices to end your journey:
- Ngong Ping 360 (at Lantau Buddah)
- Dog Teeth Trails: West, Middle & East
- Ngong Ping Campsite
- Pak Kung Au

Some highlights of the trail as we finish our hiking trip at Pak Kung Au.

On a fine and clear day...this is another highlight of the trail...and just around here is a shelter where you can have  another break and maybe wait for a magical sunset to happen.

The sky is clear and the temperature is low and our hiking is almost done and here's what I say  so...
a Beautiful Sunset!

Friendly Reminder
Enjoy Your Country Park, Enjoy Hiking and Leave No Trace!
