Tung Chung and Hong Kong International Airport
You can get a bird view of Tung Chung and Hong Kong International Airport near Por Kai Shan. I know the sunset is pretty, but you can view it elsewhere. Now let's focus on the screen-like 50- to 70-storey buildings standing in front of you, which can be found in cities with a high population density. After the Hong Kong...
Volcanic Eruption at Sharp Peak, Hong Kong
You can tell the "volcano" is fake. Sharp Peak is a tough hiking trail in Sai Kung Country Park for professional hikers. In clear weather, people can see the sharp peak from almost every angle in the east of Sai Kung. The real volcano in Hong Kong actually died millions of years ago, left thousands of hexagonal volcanic rocks along...
Hsien Ku Fung at Pak Sing Leng 八仙嶺何仙姑
Hsien Ku Fung (仙姑峰) is at the east end of Pak Sin Leng mountain range and Wilson Trail Stage 9, and it is one of the best peaks to get a 360-degree view of the nature of northeast New Territories.

Lantau Mountain Camp at Sunset Peak| 爛頭營 | 大東石室
It is like walking into a dreamland. Dozens of stone houses are built among silvergrass, across the top of Sunset Peak at Lantau Island. These stone houses have more than 90 years of history, but even local Hong Kong people cannot tell the stories behind them. It is said that the houses were built by British missionaries for camping purpose. At...
Tuen Mun District - Castle Peak
From the top of Castle Peak, hikers can sense the harmony between human and nature in Hong Kong. Hong Kongers are very conservative in reclaiming land from the nature. They respect the nature and live with the nature. If you have a chance to view the satellite map of Hong Kong, you can see that 80% of the land consists...
Silver Mine Bay seen from Lin Fa Shan | 蓮花山眺望梅窩銀鑛灣
Most hikers come to Lantau Island to conquer the Twin Peak (Lantau Peak and Sunset Peak). Although they are the highest mountains in Lantau Island, people can hardly see the Silver Mine Bay because it is blocked by Lin Fa Shan, the 6th highest hill in Hong Kong. Lin Fa Shan is ignored by most people, but the scene on...
Sharp Peak | Nam She Tsim | 蚺蛇尖 | 塔門
