Trip Description

This is a relative new hiking trail. It was originally built for the construction and the maintenance of the Hong Kong "360" Cable Car. Most the trail is direct under the cable. You can literally see the passengers' faces in the cable cars. The trail is well built, it goes from 0M to more than 500M. If compounded by a burning sun, it could be a pretty demanding exercise.
