Tate's Cairn Tunnel - The Longest Road Tunnel in Hong Kong

Tate's Cairn Tunnel - Hong KongAt 583 metres in height, Tate's Cairn, is one of the highest peaks in Hong Kong. Locally called Tai Lo Shan, it is one of the peaks of the Kowloon Ridge and falls within Ma On Shan Country Park , Hong Kong.

Tate's Cairn is at the end of stage four and the start of stage five of the 100-kilometre long  MacLehose Trail. The trail passes through a variety of natural and beautiful scenery including exquisite beaches and mountain peaks which contrast what many would associate as typical Hong Kong landscapes.

Under the peak is the Tate's Cairn Tunnel, a 3.9-kilometre (2.4 mi) long twin tube, four-lane tunnel which links Diamond Hill, Kowloon East and Siu Lek Yuen, Sha Tin in the New Territories East.

The tunnel is the longest road tunnel in Hong Kong, with the northbound tube having a length of 3,913 metres (12,838 ft) and southbound tube having a length of 3,945 metres (12,943 ft).
