Such is the case with that which combines a section of the Olympic Trail, the Lo Fu Tau Country Trail and a path which starts from Discovery Bay -- the last of which involves something that feels more like a climb than a conventional hike, and is so steep that I would never contemplate going down it. At the same time, there's no denying that the view from the top of Lo Fu Tau (Tiger Head) is pretty breathtaking -- and the section between its summit and Ah Po Long is wonderfully scenic and also not all that difficult to go along...
This hiking trail is one of many in Hong Kong
which starts with a steep climb
On the plus side, one gets high up and good views pretty quickly!
On the minus side, we're talking about an ascent
that involves hundreds of steps here...!
A nice easy bit before the really difficult part
See what I mean about the difficult part?
You may think that when you get up those rocks,
you've made it up to the top of Lo Fu Tau...
...and it's true enough that you get to have
this pretty decent view from up there...
...but alas, a glance up shows that there's still a ways
to go before one really is at the top of Lo Fu Tau...
To be continued (but of course)! ;b
