Chi Ma Wan country trail is a circular peninsula route,
being the longest among the 7 country trails on
Lantau. Starting and ending at Shap Long Campsite,
it passes by Pui O Bay, Mong Tung Wan, Sea Ranch
in Yi Long and Tai Long Village. On the beach at
Sea Ranch, there is a lime kiln dating back to
the Tang Dynasty (618-907AD). This site is now
a listed historic monument.
Ha Keng, a spot 2.5 km east of
Lung Mei, is where you find "Rock Wonder".
Along this stretch, rocks of grotesque shapes and
forms scattered on the hill. Most of them are granite
formations which had been formed as a result of prolonged
weathering and erosion.
Looking out from Rock Wonder is
the north Cheung Chau Channel. This busy waterway
is a marine thoroughfare for Hong Kong and Macau
Further 3km ahead, Chi Ma Wan Reservoir
emerges amidst thickets of trees. It was completed
in 1955 to supply water to Cheung Chau. To the southwest
is Lo Yan Shan, a peak of 303m. The fire lookout
there overlooks the nearby hills in the dry season.
