'The Phoenix' - Sunset and Lantau Peaks
If it's elevation and grand vistas that you crave, then this 11km mix of mountain and trail running over two of Hong Kong's highest peaks will leave you satiated, if not breathless. Starting in the sleepy old town of Mui Wo, you'll need to catch a ferry from the Outlying Islands Pier 6 in Hong Kong (30 mins) before disembarking and following signs for 'Sunset Peak' and the Lantau Trail. After summiting both peaks, a descent to Ngong Ping and the Po Lin Monastery affords incredible views of the towering bronze Tian Tan Buddha.
