Nei Lak Shan Country Trail, a level circular path, starts at the entrance of Dong Shan Fa Mun.  In contrast with the breathtaking Lantau Peak, the flat trail, is just like a path surrounding the tummy of Maitreya Buddha.  Along the trail there are lookouts overlooking Ngong Ping and the Big Buddha.  In spring and summer, the sights are complemented by fog and mist while in autumn and winter, the picture is supplemented with swaying silvergrass.  The middle part of the route overlaps a cable car line, providing visitors with the interesting scene of cable cars passing above their heads.  In the evening, the views of Ngong Ping Village and the Big Buddha are enhanced by the sunset in the background.  The trail passes through a number of secondary forests, which have a rich diversity of plants such as Buttercup Orchids with yellow flowers and Hong Kong Burmannia.  Scenes vary along the route – on the east it looks out on Tung Chung Town Centre and the monasteries and temples scattered on the hill, while on the north, it overlooks the figure-like airport and Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge, which stretches into the Peal River.
