Into the wild on Lantau PeakHong Kong, China

Hong Kong’s largest island is just the scenic spot you need to add to your next city break. So pull on your hiking boots, pack a thermos and embark on a sunrise trek to Lantau Peak, the region’s most majestic summit. At 934 metres, it’s not Hong Kong’s highest mountain (that award goes to Tai Mo Shan) but its ethereal views are worth the slog.

Meet your guide Rory under the cover of darkness and begin your ascent through the mountain’s north ridge. For the next three hours you’ll hike through tawny grass, glimpsing coastal villages and even a star-lit sky away from the city’s smog, before making the final scramble to the summit. Pat each other on the back, clink your hot bevvies and turn your eyes to the horizon to watch dawn’s glow wash over.

Get a fresh perspective on this Chinese territory.
