Hong Kong’s Maclehose Trail Named One of the World’s Best Hikes by National Geographic
While Hong Kong may be mainly famous for its busy city life, its countryside is stunningly beautiful. In 2016, National Geographic Magazine, a media leader in world geography and culture, listed Hong Kong’s MacLehose Trail in its “World’s Best Hikes: 20 Dream Trails”, confirming the beauty of this natural landscape.
From November 2016, tourists will be able to join guided tours to explore this world-class hiking trail, guided by professional hiking guides. The entire trail covers about 100 km, from Sai Kung to Tuen Mun. This tour focuses on the first section of the trail, taking participants to the famous, world-unique hexagonal rock columns in Hong Kong UNESCO Global Geopark of China, then to the stunning East Dam of High Island Reservoir, and finally a view of the beautiful Long Ke beach, hidden in the Sai Kung Peninsula. There are also other hiking and biking tours available, allowing visitors to explore the award-winning routes in Hong Kong’s countryside.
