Chi Ma Wan Country Trail, with a total distance of 18.5 kilometres, shares the same starting and ending point at Shap Long Campsite.  The trail surrounds most of Chi Ma Wan Peninsula, offering hikers vistas of Pui O Bay, Ham Tin Village and Cheung Sha.  Since the trail skirts along the coastline, weathering has given the rocks an extraordinary look, and thus in the vicinity there is a famous spot called ‘Rock Wonder’, where granites in unique shapes scatter around hillsides.  Up at the peak of Lo Yan Shan, which is 306 metres high, hikers would be stunned by the 360-degree panorama of Tsing Ma Bridge, International Commerce Centre and International Finance Centre (on clear days).  Given its awe-inspiring natural landscapes and captivating city views, the route never fails to attract tourists even though it takes visitors as long as 8 hours to complete the trip.  It is rewarding to explore the peninsula through hiking and taking glimpses of the sea.
