Itinerary

 

 

We meet at 11.00 am just outside the Discovery Bay (DB) Pier.  For those travelling by ferry from Central, you have to take the 10.30 am ferry from Pier 3 to DB at the Central Piers.  For those travelling by bus, you have to catch Bus 3R from Sunnybay MTR Station or Bus 1R from the Tung Chung Bus Terminal and get off at the DB Pier.

This is the walk to Mui Wo that does not take in the Trappist Monastry, as we skirt round the hill where they are building mega-buck apartments, taking in views of DB.  Then we cross a stream and up and down a couple of hills to the lookout and then down to Mui Wo and Silver Mine Bay beach for lunch.

After that, we walk through the back of Mui Wo to the abandoned silver mine and then a gradual climb to Tiger’s Head before descending to Discovery Bay Road for a bus to DB Pier for the trip back to Central or Bus 3R to Sunnybay MTR Station or Bus1R to the Tung Chung Bus Terminal.

Please bring the usual hat, sun cream and water.
