Introduction:
Section 11 of the Lantau Trail starts just across the old Tung Chung Road. This section is along a catchwater, which runs for three kilometres. At Distance Post L117, there is an excellent view over the Cheung Sha Sheung Village. L119 marks the end of the catchwater. From here on the Lantau Trail continues as a hillside path for one and a half kilometres. The trail, with stone steps and passing some dense woodland, reaches South Lantau Road at Pui O. On the way, the route overlooks the villages of Lo Uk and Pui O San Wai. People have lived around Pui O since the Ming Dynasty. As the narrow coastal valley here looks rather like a spiral shell, it was given the name Pui O. Until a few decades ago, as elsewhere on Lantau, the Pui O villagers lived from fishing and farming. But today the place is a leisure resort, with shops and restaurants.

Transport Access:
