Lantau Peak or “Fung Wong Shan’’ (Chinese鳳凰山, literally "Phoenix Mountain") is the second highest peak in Hong Kong and the highest point on Lantau Island, with a height of 934 metres (3,064 ft) above sea level. It is most famous for the sunrise scenery viewed from the summit.  This mountain is actually made up of a pair of peaks, one is known as "Fung Shan" (male phoenix mountain) and the other is "Wong Shan" (female phoenix mountain), together they form "Fung Wong Shan".  (From Wikipedia)

Itinerary

This Sunday, April 3, 2016, the trampers will be back to their normal 3-boots routine.  It will be a bit tough but quite familiar to most of the trampers.  We will meet at 10:30am at Exit B of Tung Chung MTR Station, Lantau Island.  From the MTR station, we will take transport to Shek Pik Reservoir to start the walk.  Warming up walk on the country trail will only be about half an hour.  Then climbing up hill through the steep slope will be another 3 hours.  After reaching the Lantau peak with the height of 934m, we will take the path on the eastern slope leading us to Pak Kung Au.  Over there, we could take transport back to Tung Chung or Mui Wo.  OR we could keep going descending to Tung Chung via Shek Mun Gap to end the walk.

Bushwhacking and good balancing skill will be required.  Please show up in full gears with2 litres of water, lunch, snacks, rain wear, a torch, sun block, gloves and mos-spray(but no cigarette).  If it is raining hard or thunderstorms are threatening, the walk may be cancelled.  If in doubt, call the trampers hotline 8209-0517 in the morning.
