Ngong Ping 360 Rescue Trail
UPDATE: The cable car is back in operation as of June 2017, with the Ngong Ping 360 Rescue Trail to reopen following the end of the month.
In case you missed it in the news, take note that the Ngong Ping 360 Rescue Trail (and cable car) on Lantau is currently closed for maintenance work until this June. The exact reopening date presumably won’t be known until nearer the time. As soon as I hear something, I’ll be sure to post an update!
The cable car rope is due for replacement, and the rescue trail below the system needs to be closed for safety reasons. Ngong Ping Village, the Big Buddha et al., and other access routes/modes remain unaffected. For those keen on hiking up to Ngong Ping, the road access route is still an option.
Silvermine Bay Beach, Mui Wo (public beach facilities and services only)
Also, take note that Silvermine Bay Beach in Mui Wo, Lantau, is currently ‘closed’ from a public beach facilities and services perspective until early/mid-2018. The closure is to allow for “improvement works”. The beach itself and everything else in the vicinity remain unaffected, including hiking trails to and from Mui Wo.
