After conquering the exhausting Ma On Shan and Needle Hill, for every Oxfam Trailwalker, Tai Mo Shan is their ultimate challenge.

957m is the highest altitude on Maclehose Trail and hikers can enjoy the most stunning view in Hong Kong under good weather.

After the peak of Tai Mo Shan, hikers descend all the way to around 100m to finish the last two stages of the Maclehose Trail.

Follow me now to explore the Hong Kong less traveled.
