Trip Description

Dog Teeth Range, Kau Nga Ling (), 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 (Cyan in map), Middle (Blue in map) and East (Magenta in map) Dog Teeth Range. This page will bring you to the Middle Dog Teeth.

Description : This is the location where Middle Dog Teeth meets West Dog Teeth. There is a 5M tall cliff standing at the junction. This is called Cliff of Lone Tree (@V). This is so-called because there was a lonely tree sitting right next to the cliff. In my last visit, the tree disappeared.
