Trip Description

The trip starts from Ko Lau Wan (高流灣) to Chekkeng (赤徑) of Maclehose trail. Ko Lau Wan is a small village which can be reached by local ferry. There is no high mountain on the way, the foot path is a bit narrow and brushy. In good weather, a nice blend of sky, cloud, ocean, mountains and islands form an exquisite picture.
