MOUNT JOHNSTON - YUK KWAI SHAN HIKE

WILD FACTOR- ★★★

Mount Johnston (aka Yuk Kwai Shan) 196m in height, is located at the southeast of Ap Lei Chau in the south of HK Island. There is a small island named Ap Lei Pai linking with sandbank at its end. Once up the top there’s some good views over Aberdeen in all directions towards Ocean Park, over Bel-Air, and out towards Lamma Island.

Difficulty
The hike is short but steep, and requires some clambering. Depending on the tides we may or may not be able to cross over the sandbank to the island itself, and if not we will just ascend to the peak of Yuk Kwai Shan and relax on the top for a while before going back down.
