Dogs and Buffalos

Dogs and Buffalos

There are three locations you need to be aware of the village dogs 🐕 that could show an aggressive behaviour within their territory, especially at night.

  1. Ngong Ping
  2. Tai O village
  3. Shum Wut


  1. Do not run but hike in presence of a barking dog
  2. Hold a water bottle, if the dog gets too close, you may splash the water on the dog to scare it
  3. Hold your trekking pole

Water buffalos 🐃 are protected animals on Lantau island. They are generally not aggressive and will slowly move away 🙂. Keep an eye when passing a buffalo who shares the trail with you.
