Meet your guide and small group at a local tea restaurant, or cha chaan teng, in central Hong Kong. To fuel your body for the day's trek, order the 'breakfast A with hot milk tea', a local favorite.
Hop on public transportation for the short ride to the hike's starting point in Discovery Bay. Hit the trail and get to know your guide and small group as you walk. Before long, find yourself in the quaint coastal village of Nim Shue Wan. Follow the path through the woods, noticing the 14 wooden crosses nailed to the surrounding trees, representing the stations of the cross. Come to the Our Lady of Joy, a Trappist monastery that provides an example of Eastern and Western religion's and architecture's intersection. Learn about the area's history, including the local dairy once known as the 'Trappist Dairy'.
Access the peak via a long staircase, ending in a lookout platform offering panoramic views over Hong Kong and its surrounding islands.
Descend to Mui Wo for a hearty lunch. Spend time wandering around old cottages, listening to the running creek and exploring the ancient temple and god-house. Relax with a visit to the serene waterfall nearby.
Your tour ends in Mui Wo; feel free to remain here and enjoy the sunset or a seafood dinner before returning to Hong Kong.
