Lantau 2 Peaks

Sometimes we succeed and sometimes we learn. Lantau 2 Peaks was a game plan gone wrong for me. I ended up having cramps, getting lost and ending up with a totally different adventure. It was not my day but lessons were learned and truly grateful to have a race partner who’d hang in there with me during those tough times. Continue reading »

Lantau Peak is the second highest peak in Hong Kong at 934 meters. It’s Section 3 of the Lantau Trail, which has a total distance of 70 kilometers. This section leads you to the Lantau Peak and then eventually to Ngong Ping, where the largest outdoor sitting Buddha is located in Lantau Island.

Home Kong… Hong Kong…

There’s a thing about Hone Kong that combines the rich cultural heritage it has and the new technologies that have arrived. I guess that’s its signature, a country who knows who they are and adopts its culture towards the changing global landscapes.
