A Day Hike Around Lamma Island

Hong Kong, China

The Facts

  • Start or End: I started and finished at Yung Shue Wan Ferry Terminal (Google Map Directions), via a ferry ride from Central Ferry Pier No.4 on Hong Kong Island (Google Map Directions). Alternatively, Lamma Island can also be accessed from Central Ferry Pier No.4 by ferry to Sok Kwu Wan Pier (Google Map Directions). Ferries also service Aberdeen (Google Map Directions).
  • Length: 27.3km (17.0mi) in 9hr
  • Grade: The hike I did would be classified as hard, based mainly on the length and the climb up Ling Kok Shan. However, the hike could be classified easy to medium if only selected sections are walked. For example, the Lamma Island Family Walk is 7km according to Discover Hong Kong and travels from Sok Kwu Wan to Yung Shue Wan. Such a walk includes hilly sections and would be classified easy to medium (Google Maps seems to think the walk is much longer and circles around the island much like I did). If you choose to hike up Ling Kok Shan the walk would be upgraded to a medium classification.
  • Date Walked: 10th of December 2015
