Just received word - long after the fact maybe - that the trail from Tai O south through Yi O to Fan Lau is now open, tho only hikers who are keeping it open. Can become overgrown. (Had been closed coz of stroppy villagers at Yi O; the Lantau Trail now detours up and past the village.)
Also: at Bride's Pool, the path down the ravine to Cheung Mei is open again, after the footbridge has been repaired.
Stage 4 of Lantau Trail, from Ngong Ping to the road to Tai O, has been changed due to massive landslide that slashed through the trail above Shek Pik Reservoir. Now, from north of the Tea Gardens, heads south along a tree trail, then up hillside to skirt around south slopes of Nei Lak Shan. Then down past the cablecar station, and down road from Ngong Ping.
