Pat Sin Leng
The Pat Sin Leng range is one of the most famous hikes in Hong Kong, and also one of the more demanding walks. The name "Pat Sin Leng" means "Peaks of Eight Gods", as it is a mountain ridge with eight distinct peaks. The views from this range are among the best of Hong Kong.
Geologically these mountains are interesting as they are part of a major escarpment, where part of the terrain has been lifted by tectonic forces.
The hike follows the mountain ridge though some beautiful mountain landscapes, and finally passes by Sha Lo Tung, an all but abandoned village, the houses of which have grade II heritage status. Here you can take a closer look at typical Hakka-style homes, and (weekends and holidays only) enjoy a bowl of the local delicacy dou-fu-fa, a sweet tofu pudding.
Price includes guide fee.
