Chi Ma Wan Country Trail Information

 


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 sea traffic.

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.
