About this event

Included in the Hong Kong UNESCO Global Geopark, Tung Ping Chau is an esteemed museum of geomorphology. This easternmost island of Hong Kong is formed entirely of sedimentary rocks with a variety of marine abrasion landforms along its coast. The shores of this level island are decorated with colourful laminations of top rock shale and many other natural wonders.. Get on a boat and start the journey of circumnavigating the Tung Ping Chau Islands to view the spectacular natural creations of rocks

Itinerary

8:45am Depart from Ma Liu Shui Pier heading to Tung Ping Chau Island. Tour briefing will be provided on boat

10:30am Continue on the trail in the woods until the view broadens. Descend the slope carefully, and you will be greeted by the boundless ocean and distinctively stratified shale bed, with Cham Keng Chau on your right. The spur, originally attached to the island, broke off from continuous erosion, and a natural corridor took shape. Walk along the passage between the sharp cliffs and enjoy the refreshing cool breeze.

12:30pm Lunch

1:30 pm Walk along a 100-metre-long band of rocks stretching off the coast from the hillside in Lung Lok Shui. With its triangular edges, it looks as though a dragon is making its way down into the ocean. This unique landform is carved from differential wave erosion of two rock layers We then walk left along the beach of A Ma Wan. As you enjoy the sea breeze and the sound of waves lapping the shore, keep an eye out for the amazing rock features here: wave-carved shale, iron-rich rocks weathered to resemble chequerboards, and stromatolitic structures made of fossils of cyanobacteria, just to name a few.
