Guided Hike: Ma On Shan to Sai Kung with RGSHK

Why We Recommend it

Go on a guided hike from Ma On Shan to Sai Kung with the Royal Geographic Society of Hong Kong, passing through quaint villages and reaching soaring peaks.


Join Rory Mackay and the Royal Geographic Society on a guided hike from Ma On Shan to Sai Kung to discover some of the most spectacular views that the hilltops of Hong Kong have to offer.

The first section of guided hike departs from a peaceful village into secluded forests, before following a small mountain stream upwards. Along the way, there is an abundance of local wildlife including various small insects, mammals, reptiles and birds.

At the highlight of the trip on Ngong Ping, a grassy plateau awaits with ample open space to enjoy a packed lunch, with a ridge line offering a beautiful view of the surrounding area of Sai Kung. There is an optional hike up Pyramid Hill with even greater views directly above the Ngong Ping lunch location. Mackay will stop at various spots to highlight and explain local points of interest to attendees.

Mackay is originally from the United Kingdom but now lives in Sai Kung. He began an adventure career by sailing an 80-foot yacht from Scotland to the Svalbard archipelago near the North Pole. He has since completed a solo bicycle trip from Ho Chi Minh City to Hong Kong, and he also completed a solo ride from Cape Town to Cairo in six months, and climbed of some high altitude routes in the Himalayas and Andes. He now runs an adventure tour company called Wild Hong Kong.

The group will meet and depart at Central.
