Escape the bustle of the city for a refreshing hike through lush, protected park land where mountain crests, vast bays dotted with islands, secluded beaches, and verdant landscape surround you with unforgettable vistas.
Hike to white sandy beaches with clear blue waters in Hong Kong's remote East Sai Kung Country Park, where access is restricted to foot or boat. The hike takes you along a coastline backed by lush tropical vegetation and forested ridges offering spectacular mountain and coastal sea views. Following a network of paths, often on intervillage routes, you pass fascinating old Hakka clan villages. The Hakka farmers nurtured feng shui woods which provide a great breeding environment for native species and you can see many examples of natural reforestation.The Sai Kung uplands and coasts have always been sparsely populated and, from the 1970s, many villagers left their ancestral lands in favour of city lives. The Deserted Beaches Hike offers a unique insight into the homes, lands, and beaches that these villagers left behind. Although just 20 kilometers (13 miles) from Kowloon, this tour will make you feel a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
