Yin Tsz Ngam literally means Swallow Cave in Chinese. It is actually several caves located at the northeast coast of Tai Yue Ngam Teng where lots of swallows and bats build their nests.

Suffered from the northeast monsoon and tide for millions of years, the coastline of Sai Kung Peninsula is full of amazing geological miracles, such as volcanic rock columns, sea caves, sea arches and sea-cut platforms.

Therefore, some experienced hikers trek along the coastlines to challenge their skills and battle with the nature. Some advanced routes even require hikers to wear life jackets and helmets to avoid unexpected waves hitting the rocks which cause many deaths every year in Hong Kong.

It is also said that Tin Tsz Ngam is a popular place for fishing and people can catch some rare fishes here.


How to Get There:

It is suggested to book private boat to get there.


Chinese Translation:

Yin Tsz Ngam: 燕子岩
Tai Yue Ngam Teng: 睇魚岩頂
Sai Kung Peninsula: 西貢半島
Trek along the Coastlines: 捆邊

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.
