Decidedly more difficult than expected. Once you start the decent into Discovery Bay, the path is very, very steep and with a bit of rain, could be very slippery. We saw one person crawling down on their bum, while we also saw someone with their dog run down. So I would say go slowly unless you are very familiar with the trail. Otherwise, very pleasant walk if you have 3-4 hours!

This is a favourite hike for my family. It is fairly easy only a few steep parts. Harder to do when the weather is extremely hot and humid. Lots of stairs on the decent to MW. My knees begin to hurt half way down. But overall a lovely hike!

Beautiful hike, but challenging in the June heat!

Amazing trail! Incredible views! Great little villages between the first climb and the second climb (especially Pak Mong village, where you can get a cold drink from the little cafe, which someone will be able to point you to). This trail is of ADVANCED DIFFICULTY!! Do not attempt this trail alone or in the summer heat. Bring a lot more water than you think you’ll need. You will drink it all.

Beautiful hike along the ocean. Go to Lamma Grill for the best ribs you’ll ever have! And if you want a less crowded beach with great swimming stop at Lo So Shing beach instead of the main beach along the trail (about 45 min walk from the main ferry terminal / Lamma Grill)

The trail you will find here doesn’t actually arrive to the very top of Lin Fa Shan, Sunset Peak and Lantau Peak but the trail is very easy to find. I went on top of all 3 the peaks and the view are just stunning. It’s a long hike and deserves respect, be well prepared with a lot of water and proper hiking gear. MOST IMPORTANTLY PLEASE DO NOT LITTER THIS BEAUTIFUL ENVIRONMENT PLEEEEEASE!!!!

Trail is easy. I hiked with few children, my 3 years old on a light stroller. We carried it when there were steps. Not clearly marked at the beginning thru the beach and village at DB. The view on top of hill is excellent. Monastery is beautiful. You can also attend daily mass 7am, none 2pm, vespers 5:20pm if you are catholic. Sunday mass 10:30am and Benediction 7:20pm. Monks and Sisters are still living there.

This is a great hike, though I did it in reverse from disco to tung Chung. I think I would do it the other way next time though as the MTR ride back to central isn’t nearly as relaxing as the ferry ride from Disco Bay to central. Although, getting the steepest part done first and spending the last 2 thirds going down hill to Tung Chung was nice. The stretch from Tung Chung MTR to the trail head is on he sea wall, between the airport and the MTR line and there’s not a bit of shade. There are lots of Go Bee bikes around though, so you could potentially rent one and bike that bit. Setup the app first tho and be prepared for a $400 hkd deposit plus however much credit you want to load, if you haven’t used GoBee bikes before Otherwise bring an umbrella and sunscreen. Gear: sun screen, umbrella, lots of water, trekking poles with hard tips attached for hard packed dirt, if you have them, Lunch or a large snack.

Should note, the main map of this hike is from the cable car dropoff, not the full hike, which looks quite challenging. They said the last cable car is at 6, at least today, which is a regular week day, so plan accordingly. The cable car is not cheap either, $210 hkd round-trip for the standard. There’s apparently a hefty discount if you book online with koon or kool or something, so I wish I had known that. Buddha is amazing and well worth the hike or the cable car, whichever you choose, as is the monastery. The area around it is a tourist trap though so if you’re on a budget, plan to bring a snack or something.

We do this hike quite often. Not sure what's about the category - this should be noted as moderate, in my view. Especially the first 2km from DB to Tiger Head is quite steep and challenging. Most of the photos linked to this hike are actually from the shorter trail via the Monastery... (only 6km).

I've done this trail numerous times, including with my 88-year-old father. The trail is never strenuous. but it gives a very different picture of Hong Kong than you get on other trails and other islands. There is an amazing tiny Thai satay stand near Yung Shue Wan, where you can also sit down for other Thai dishes. It's the best replica of the atmosphere in Thailand for such places that I've found outside of Thailand and the food is great. At the south end, if you want to keep going, there is a trail that loops around the eastern of the two peaks, to some lovely beaches on the south side of the island; there is also a trail that goes up and over the eastern peak if you want to get a great view over the Lamma Channel and the South China Sea.

Welcome to Hong Kong- great atmosphere in the city as well as out. If you're coming from the monastery be prepared for a climb. It's worth it but there's some big elevation to climb in a short period so take breaks if you need. I saw only one person coming the way we came, Everyone else was coming from the other direction. The trail head is a ways back behind the monastery, you'll pass old an housing quarters/boarding home and what looks like an old restaurant. The initial climb is the hardest , mostly boulder size steps until you get to a clearing at the top with some large rocks to climb on for decent views. Some advice: it was mostly out in the open so if its hot, be prepared. The second stint is another short scramble to the top where you'll find a small shelter and 12-20 folks with selfie sticks. There are also large rocks to climb out on to get a better view. We hiked through to the other end and caught a bus back to HK.

Started the trail near Tung Chung. The first mile is very steep with tall stone stairs that go straight up the mountain side without and flat portions. Even though shaded, doing this in the middle of a summer day forced me to take many breaks. After the first mile the slope mellows out a bit and the air cools off as you gain elevation. Once on top, the views make the climb all worth it. Once on the other side, there is a bus stop and ferry to get back to Hong Kong, very convenient. Beautiful trail!
