On Tap Mun (a.k.a. Grass Island), tourists can get a good view of the east ridge of Nam She Tsim (a.k.a. Sharp Peak). It is the path that hikers usually choose to go downhill. (See south ridge of Sharp Peak.)

At the end of the ridge is Tai Long Tsui (大浪咀), where very few people can get there after an exhaustive descent from the top. You will never regret it if you can reach the end.

In 2003, I moved to Hong Kong with a dream of traveling around the world. Later I found out, HK is an amazing "mini world". Other than skyscrapers, a few steps outside the modern city, it has steep hills, winding coastlines, outlying islands, millions of years volcanic rocks, remote beaches, unspoilt fishing villages, secret waterfalls, wild animals and ancient forests. Follow me now to explore the Hong Kong less traveled.
