Overall Difficulty (0Star)

The main peak of Lantau Peak, Fung Shan, and secondary peak, Huang Shan, forms a hill pass called ‘Phoenix Gate’ in between.  If viewed from a distance, it resembles a mountain with a broken hillside (“Lan Tao Shan” in Cantonese).  This is why it is called Lantau Peak, which pronounces similar to this Cantonese name. Sitting at the centre of Lantau Island, Lantau Peak is the second highest peak in Hong Kong, with a height of 934 metres above sea level.  It is only 23 metres shorter than Tai Mo Shan, Hong Kong’s highest peak, but since the summit of Tai Mo Shan is a restricted zone, Lantau Peak is the highest point accessible to the public, with panoramic views of the southwestern part of Hong Kong – Hong Kong International Airport, and Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, both of which appear golden in the glow of the sunset, Shek Pik Reservoir, Sunset Peak, Yi Tung Shan, and the Soko Islands all come into full view.  What’s more, it is a popular spot to catch the sunrise during Chinese New Year, and the lucky ones are greeted with a breathtaking view of the sunrise over a sea of clouds.
