Located at north western Lantau, Nei Shan Ravine originates from one of the two biggest hydrographic nets of Nei Lak Shan, the fifth tallest point in Hong Kong, standing at 751 metres.
It takes about 6.5 hours to go through the entire length of Nei Shan Ravine. The first section alone is a one-hour hike. You must set aside a full day to complete the journey. Mo Tian Cliff, which is more than 100 feet tall, is one of the most famous parts of the trail. It is highly difficult for hikers and call for actual climbing to conquer. A detour through the woodlands on the right is an alternative route. Up at Mo Tian Cliff, you will be able to see the stunning views of 13 unique waterfalls. The ravine collects water from the back of the gorge of the northern slope, wriggling down along the mountain contours to the harbour front at Shan Tau Village. Visitors can also consider the more novice-friendly Ngong Ping Trail, especially if they are travelling with children.
