Ah Kai Shan (丫髻山) is located at Yuen Long, northwest of New Territories. With an altitude of 121m, Ah Kai Shan separates Yuen Long Industrial Estate and Tin Shui Wai New Town. Standing on top of the hill, hikers can see hundreds of fishponds around Nam Sang Wai, Mai Po Nature Reserve and Shenzhen in China. There are lots of family graves on the hill, where tourists can experience local villagers’ ritual towards death in the past.

To get there, take minibus 74 at MTR Long Ping Station and get off at last stop at Shing Uk Tsuen. Walk along Fuk Shun Street and follow the small trail near #BD3929 lighting post to go uphill.
