The hike is great for various reasons. There is not much distance to cover while moving uphill as the major portion of this hike is going downhill. There are many good picturesque locations in between that will tempt any sane person to click a few photos at least. Towards the bottom, you end up at the white sandy beach of Tai Long Bay where you can refresh by having a swim and then relax on the beach for some respite.
