follows a circular route of about 70 km through the finest scenary of the
Lantau Country Parks, starting and ending at Mui Wo.
The trails is divided into twelve stages of different lengths. You can choose the ones you like to hike. The shorter stages are more suitable for a leisurely day's outing; and the longer ones are for weekend camping trips.

To further your enjoyment you may wish to combine the walk with other interests. For example, there is unlimited scope for a photographer, naturalist, geographer and for historian to discover remnants of traditional rural life. However, please allow sufficient time and energy to leave the trail to get to points where public transport is available.
The first five stages stretch
over the rugged mountains whilst the other seven stages are never too
far away from the coastline. The trail links up many popular sceniec spots
