Before Hong Kong became a city and port, Lantau Peak had always been referred to as ‘Lan Tau’, which is the romanisation of the words ‘broken head’ in Chinese, by local villagers because the outline of its summit looks broken apart. In the 19th century when British people came to Hong Kong, the whole island was called the same name; this is how Lantau Island got its name. The third section of the Lantau Trail, which was also named after Lantau Peak, begins uphill from Pak Kung Au to Lantau Peak.

Lantau Peak is the second highest peak in Hong Kong, with a height of 934 meters, as the summit of the highest peak Tai Mo Shan is inside the restricted area, the top of Lantau Peak is the highest peak in Hong Kong that everyone can be accessed.
