Description

Hong Kongs premiere climbing area, Tung Lung Chau, contains probably the highest concentration of quality sport climbs in the territory.

Access issues

A ferry runs to Tung Lung Chau from Sai Wan Ho typhoon shelter (exit A1 from Sai Wan Ho MTR Station and walk rightwards to the coastline) on weekends and most Public Holidays.

A ferry also runs from the pier at Sam Ka Tsuen, Lei Yue Mun (approach by taxi from Lam Tin MTR Station).

Weekday access: Sampans (for up to 4 people) can usually be rented from the typhoon shelter at Sai Wan Ho by just showing up and haggling with the boat operator. A speed boat (with capacity for 10 people) can be arranged by calling Mr Cheng at: 9080 3754.

Approach

Upon arrival at the island follow the obvious concrete path, signposted towards Tung Lung Fort. The large boulder located atop a small hillock is Kite Rock and contains half a dozen short bolted routes. Continue along the path, past the Holiday Store (which provides free topo’s, strong coffee and excellent dumplings), to a camping ground.
