Lo Fu Tau Country Trail Information

 


Located in Lantau North (Extension) Country Park, Lo Fu Tau Country Trail is about 3.4 km in total length, takes about 1.25 hours to complete the walk. Set off from Pak Ngan Heung in Mui Wo or Pak Mong Village in Tung Chung in an hour, to reach A Po Long, the starting point of Lo Fu Tau Country Trail. You can take a break in the pavilion before take off your journey. As it is quite exposed along the trail, it is important to take enough food and water and have yourself properly protected against the direct sunlight. Along the trail are fine extensive views and interesting rocks overspread on mountains with most of them lie in sight beside the trail. The interesting stone groups are varied in shape: some as if cut by edge tools and some like blocks neatly stacked up. For example, a springboard-like stone on the top of the mountain is so ingeniously embedded in the stone groups that it is nothing short of a divine work. What is more amazing is the peach-shaped huge stone standing in the middle of the road, which seems like a sculpture by human. It is no wonder that some imaginative hikers name them "Sword Testing Stone", "Strange Duck Stone", "Peach Stone", etc. These differently shaped stones all display their unique features against the blue sky and white cloud, seeming that they are vying with each other for glamour, which is really a feast to the eye. When you get to the plains, you will have an endless view that delights both the body and mind. At the end of the trail, you will find, quite interestingly, that the "Tiger's head" ("Lo Fu Tau" in Cantonese) is visible only from behind the Tiger towards the nape. Looking down from Lo Fu Tau, you will see Discovery Bay, seeming like "a tiger glaring at Discovery Bay".
