The Hunch Backs, Ma On Shan, Pyramid Hill and the MacLehose Trail

Hong Kong, China

The Facts

  • Start or End: I started at a bus stop in Kam Ying Court on Kam Ying Road, Ma On Shan (Google Map Directions). Ma On Shan Train Station is also close by (Google Map Directions). The hike finished at the bus stop under the Tsz Oi Court Multi-Story Car Park on Tsz Wan Shan Road, Tsz Wan Shan (Google Map Directions).
  • Length: 14.9km (9.3mi) in about 8hr
  • Grade: Hard. The initial climb to the top of the Hunch Backs is very steep and rocky. Probably the hardest I have experienced in Hong Kong so far. In many cases this isn’t a walk but a climb as you will need to use your hands. It gets easier after reaching the summit but there are still plenty of steep gradients to contend with. Don’t expect any signage on the first climb, but once you start following the MacLehose Trail there is plenty of signage.
  • Date Walked: 8th of December 2015
