Ap Lei Pai via Mount Johnston – A short but steep challenge

End of October I was on another solo hike in Hong Kong. For the first time ever I went to Ap Lei Pai. I started my adventure at the MTR Station Lei Tung on Ap Lei Chau. Then I was trekking via Mount Johnston over to Ap Lei Pai, and visited the lighthouse.

How to get there

  • Take the MTR train (South Island Line) to Lei Tung
  • At the MTR Station, take Exit B towards the bus stop. The starting point at Lei Tung Estate. Walk between the two yellow booths. 
  • Opposite the bus stop you can find two yellow booths. Walk in-between them, and follow the path till you see the steps. 
  • There is the starting point to hike up Mount Johnston.
  • There are two trails paths parallel to the top. You can choose both, both have got some ropes. The one at the right side may be a bit easier.
