Tiger's Head (Lo Fu Tau) Country Trail Hike + Brunch

WILD FACTOR- ★★★

This is a special combination hike, walking from Mui Wo to Discovery Bay via the Olympic Trail and the Lo Fu Tau Country Trail. Along the trail are fine extensive views and interesting rocks overspread on mountains with most of them lie in sight beside the trail, especially a peach-shaped huge stone standing in the middle of the road, which seems like a sculpture by human. It is no wonder that some imaginative hikers name them "Sword Testing Stone", "Strange Duck Stone", "Peach Stone", etc. At the end of the trail, you will find that the "Tiger's head" ("Lo Fu Tau" in Cantonese) is visible only from behind the Tiger towards the nape. Looking down from Lo Fu Tau, you will see Discovery Bay, seeming like "a tiger glaring at Discovery Bay".

Difficulty
There is around 550m of climbing on this hike and the descent from Lo Fu Tau is steep and rugged. As it is quite exposed along the trail, it is important to take enough food and water and have yourself properly protected against the direct sunlight. This hike is not suitable for beginners as you will need the fitness to walk uphill pretty constantly for over an hour.

Approximately 3-3.5 Hours in total depending on conditions and one's ability.
