      The weather is gorgeous and forecasted to have some sunshine coming
      Saturday, just perfect for climbing up the "Donkey Trail" below the cable
      cars. The first part of the trail is mainly challenging ascending steps
      (about 400 meters), will be rewarded with fantastic view of HK airport on
      one side and

      the famous Sunset and Lantau Peak on the other side. The second part of the
      trail is combination of wooden and concrete steps which lead to the final
      ascent of another 300 meters to the top. We can take break on the plateau
      before taking a easier stroll to Ngona Ping. We then take a southern descent
      passing through the Wisdom Pillar to Pak Kung Au and take bus to Tung
      Chung.( May make change on the trail after Ngong Ping depend on fitness)
