We will start from Discovery Bay,walk through the beach front and some colonial residential area to reach the entry point.We will ascend the first 250 meters via a few hundred steep steps,then another uphill ascent about 450 meters of dirt trail where you can see the Tiger Head, as well the unique panoramic view of DB . In order to be safe and not awaking the tiger, will wind through the back of its head and sneak away to another trekking path which lead us to the Olympic trail and Mui Wo.The view along the trek is scenic and awesome.Once we reach Mui Wo, will stroll through the Silvermine beach,and then climb up another 450 plus meters ascent via a thousand plus steps to the peak,then descend back to DB along the loop,we will pass by a "Holy Trial",the Trappist Monastery, a brief visit but with absolute quietness.Continue down the steep holy trail will reach a small path head toward Nim Shu Wan and back to DB. The last part of the hike is Easy.
We can have a good drink and snacks near the beach front to end our day, or you can take the ferry back to Central.
