Enjoy the sights of lush tropical vegetation, forested ridges and breathtaking mountain and coastal landscapes.

After pickup from a central meeting location in Hong Kong, head to Sai Kung East Country Park, about an hour away, with your guide. Feel the ocean breeze as you walk along the white-sand shores of remote beaches and admire the beautiful clear-blue water around the Sai Kung Peninsula. Follow your guide on a network of paths past old Hakka villages, some deserted due to villagers leaving these lands for city life. Learn about the history of the villages and the lifestyle of the locals who once lived there.

Your guide will point out various small eateries in some villages where you can have lunch (own expense). You may also bring your own lunch and have a picnic on one of the beaches.

Hiking itineraries tend to change but places you may visit include the villages and beaches of Sai Wan and Ham Tin and and the High Island Reservoir. You may also visit the historical village of Chek Keng, where former villagers occasionally visit to check on their ancestral homes. Your experienced guide has extensive knowledge of the area。 After your hiking tour, return to central Hong Kong in the evening.

Great guide from HK walks
Very good hot sweaty walk which takes you to lovely beaches.
A recent landslide means you get a boat trip on the way back which is a great reward. A great way to explore the new territories

This by far is the best tour in HK and actually my favorite tour after 6 weeks of being in China. Gabi was the most knowledgeable guide. We got hit with a monsoon rain day, and right before we were about to throw in the towel, she said she was game if I was. And thank goodness for her amazing skills because I got to see the Hakka villages and the Northern district of Sai Kung the way they were meant to be seen. We were soaking wet and loving life! If you are going to do one tour, do this one. You will never forget the feeling and the colours that this tour brings you. I'm already making all my friends heading to HK take this tour. You cant leave HK without doing it!
