The Sustainable Lantau Office (SLO) has announced plans to develop a Round-the-Lantau Route by connecting existing hiking trails and building new ones. The 100-kilometre route will loop its way right around Lantau, connecting Sunny Bay, Tung Chung, Ngong Ping, Tai O, Shek Pik, Shui Hau, Cheung Sha, Pui O, Chi Ma Wan Peninsula and Mui Wo.
By improving the network of hiking trails on Lantau, the SLO is looking to connect different attractions and locations – and create more options for recreation. “The office hopes Lantau can gather various ecological recreation programmes and become a great go-to vacation spot for the public,” SLO engineer Henry Lam Kwun-wang said.
In addition, mountain-bike trail networks in Mui Wo and Chi Ma Wan are currently being expanded and a new practice ground for mountain bikes in Mui Wo is almost complete.
