Lantau Trail (Day 1)

The group went for a hike/trail run at Lantau Trail and Hong Kong Trail from 23-27 March 2017. The Team Lead for this DIY outing is Edwin Goh. 

On Day 1 of the outing (24 March 2017), we hiked/ran at Lantau Trail; the trailhead is at Mui Wo which is a fishing village in Lantau Island. Section 1 ends at Nam Shan; Section 2 ends with a huge drop in elevation to Pak Kung Au; Section 3 goes uphill again to reach the highest point of Lantau Peak at 934 meters. It is then downhill all the way to Ngong Ping, where the big Buddha of Lantau Island is located. 

We started the hike/run at 8:00 a.m. and ended at 3:30 p.m. when the entire team arrived at the finishing point, for a duration of 7.5 hours.
