Lung Ha Wan Country Trail: a hike up Tai Tun Leng Hong Kong

Lung Ha Wan

Lung Ha Wan Country Trail is just across the road from High Junk Peak and a good alternative for those who are not keen on tackling the longer, harder trail.

 

Note: the hike itself is not long, but you will have to walk along the road almost 30% of the time to get in and out.

 

Starts from Tai Au Mun

Bus 91 from Diamond Hill to Clear Water Bay

Minibus 16 from Po Lam Station to Po Toi O Cheung

Minibus 103 from Clear Water Bay 2nd beach to Kwun Tong Pier

Minibus 103M from Tseung Kwan O Station to Clear Water Bay 2nd Beach

 

Note: if you get a taxi, you can get them to drop you off directly at the trial start/end – whichever direction you want to hike from.

 

Up through Lung Ha Wan Road

You can do a side trip down to see a pre-historic stone carving, which is surprisingly cool. And the coastline there is also spectacular!

Lung Ha Wan Country Trail up to Tai Leng Tung

Arriving at the country park!

There is one last public toilet at the start of the Lung Ha Wan Country Trail. From there, it’s a straightforward path up to Tai Leng Tung Peak.occassionally shady path lung ha wan country trail hong kong- laugh travel eat

The hike up is longer than the hike down, and you will reach a small peak first before going up to Tai Leng Tung. There are a few large boulders there that make for a perfect photo: photospot 2 lung ha wan country trail hong kong- laugh travel eat me on a rock tai tun leng lung ha wan country trail hong kong- laugh travel eat

The view is pretty amazing from there as well:

Down to Clear Water Bay Country Park

This part goes from dirt to stairs and is quite steep, which is why I always prefer to hike in this orientation. You’ll emerge to the country park’s car park.

Out via Clear Water Bay Road

From here, turn right to get back to Tai Au Mun next to the road. There is snack pavilion at the country park, so you can go and get some refreshment if needed! From Tai Au Mun, you can take any of the aforementioned public transport back out. Do note that the minibus from Po Toi O is likely to be full from the end stop.

Lung Ha Wan Country Trail is a 3 hour hike that offers a great view of Clear Water Bay up Tai Tun Leng in Hong Kong #hongkong #hike #hiking #nature

  1. Oh, I love your experience and photos. They look so stunning and inspiring. Although I have gone trekking to Dragon’s Back before, I always wanna come back Hong Kong for other routes. This trail look more challenging, but gorgeous than Dragon. Thanks so much for your sharing!
