The Mini Great Wall Hike On Cheung Chau Island, Hong Kong

A Family Friendly Hike On Cheung Chau Island

Cheung Chau Island Great Wall Mini

After years of hearing about this famous scenic hike (also could be a run as flat and concrete)), the Little Steps team finally made it on the trail!  On exiting the ferry, you can head across Cheung Chau Island and land on the other side (beachside) where you can veer toward the entrance of The Mini Great Wall hike.

What to expect?

  • The 4km trail takes about 2 hours to finish and is suitable for all ages (including toddlers).  If you want a shorter hike, you can just walk as far as you like and return the same.
  • There are portions of the wall that look like a mini version of The Great Wall Of China – bring your camera!
  • The hike is well-paved and offers amazing views!  You will find pavilions to rest at along the route.
  • Check out the 16 stones along the way which are huge and have fun names (the kids can try and spot them).  Examples include – Human Head Rock, Fa Peng, and Loaf Rock.
