Mang Tong, Islands Map

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.

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).

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!
