A Stroll Around Ngong Ping on Lantau Island

Hong Kong, China

The Map

The Facts

  • Start or End: Start and end at the Ngong Ping 360 cable car (Google Map Directions). I actually continued from the Wisdom Path along the Lantau Trail to Mui Wo, but that is a very long scenic route back home.
  • Length: 2.4km (1.5mi) in about 1.5hr
  • Grade: Very easy (except for the 268 step staircase).
  • Date Walked: 12th of November 2014

The Story

A hair-raising ride on a cable car followed by a 268 step staircase to the world's largest bronze Buddha. Plus a less than wise choice to eat Subway.

Hello, I'm Marc and welcome to metrotrekker.

Be it seeing the city sights, exploring parklands and gardens, urban walks or day-hikes in the city outskirts, the metrotrekker website details walking routes and hiking trails accessible by foot and public transport in metropolitan areas.

The metrotrekker website provides you with all the details required for metropolitan exploration:

  • a map with geolocation and a selection of map types (street, satellite, topographical)
  • navigation formats compatible with common GPS devices, desktop browser/software or mobile apps
  • trail length and difficulty
  • start and finish options (particularly by public transport)
  • photos/videos
  • attractions or points of interest along the way
  • other walks and hikes nearby
  • often a story or detailed description of the trail (I have personally walked every single trail on the website)
  • a comments section, so feel free to write about your experiences as well
  • and more improvements and resources are continually being added
