Short WW2 tunnel next to the main trail in Hong Kong Island.
Several people when reading a previous post of tunnels in the area thought that I referred to this one. So here the disambiguation.
- Beauty/fun: 1. Not very interesting.
- Difficulty: 1. You can even do it with your phone torch. The longest section is pretty short, around 50m.
- Map of one of the various ways to arrive there. This is short and bit more entertaining than going up the concrete Mount Parker road and turning right to Hong Kong trail itself.
In our case, we started hiking from Wan Chai, but you can arrive here through different routes. The main Southern entrance is pretty clear. You will be able to see the wooden fence from the trail itself.
Some meters into the tunnel you have a fork. Turning left you will arrive to another entrance.
It is really close to the trail path too although it is not visible from there with quite some bushes in the way.
If you continue the main tunnel you will arrive to the Northern entrance.
Just next to it you will find a little path going back up the hill. In no time you will see the Hong Kong trail again. Nothing special, as mentioned before.
