East Dog Teeth(東狗牙嶺)
20 Apr 2003
Dog Teeth Range, Kau Nga Ling (狗牙嶺), is one of the famous hiking trail. This trail is absolutely not for beginners. Its perils and intriguing scenery earn the fame.
It lies on the south of Lautau Peak. Since there is no tall object on your south, you can enjoy the great beauty of Southern Lantau while hiking.
As its name suggests, the Dog Teeth Range looks like dog teeth in term of shape and sharpness. One should take great care in attempting the trail.
This range composes of three ranges. They are West (Green in map), Middle (Blue in map) and East (Purple in map) Dog Teeth Range. This page will bring you to the East Dog Teeth.
Compared to Middle and West Dog Teeth, East Dog Teeth lures fewer visitors. One of the reason is the lower portion of the trail is very obscure and is covered in a forest. Finding the right way would be pretty tricky. However, the middle and upper portion of the trail is very prominent. So people are used to starting the trip from the upper end of the trail.
