Hiking Stage 2 of the Maclehose Trail - Tai Long Wan

Tai Long Wan, Sai Kung

Here are some pics from a recent 13.5km hike in Sai Kung. Strangely enough, this was a disaster and jinx free hike so no tales of woe to recount. Words cannot fully describe the beauty of this place, at least not my words, so I won't even bother trying - All this a stones throw away from one of the most congested cities in the world! - I love this place! - Enjoy!

p.s. I know I need to invest in a decent camera!

To get there: Take MTR to Choi Hung Exit C2 then Green minibis 1A to Sai Kung (last stop) then a taxi to Long Ke (the taxi drivers know it well) - Return to Sai Kung by bus 94 from Pak Tam Au (top of the hill) which is actaully the end of the trail stage

What can I say, absolutely stunning. Remarkable that it's still so unspoilt despite being so near to HK.

@ Nick: Yep 'stunning' sums it up well - I hope it stays this way

I had no idea that Hong Kong was so beautiful. The focus has always been on food, shopping or the harbour or the transit lounge stopover. Seriously Enda you should think about approaching Lonely Planet!

@ Baino: - yeah - the nature angle seems to get over looked - no idea why? - I've seen LP do a few angles on it but nothing from the larger travel empires

Hong Kong has been on our list of to do while in this part of the world. However, since we have thought of it as more a city destination rather than nature it has kind of been put on the back burner since we are so into hiking. Thanks for showing me that it looks like we can actually combine an urban/nature visit to HK.

@ Maya: It's a surprise to most people including me that nature and wilderness is so accessible here but it's a nice surprise!

What a gorgeous place to hike, sigh!
