Tung Yeung Shan

Head Tai Lam Wu Road alongside the catchwater. Passing the entrance of Tai Lam Wu village and going forward not far, it joins the Wilson Trail on the left by crossing the catchwater. The trail starts a long flight of steps that climbs up steadily along the hillside. After the strenuous climb, it gradually opens up and the slopes tames. Looking back far around, a sublime scenery over Hebe Haven and Port Shelter could be seen as a reward.

Up to the smooth leg (beyond the signpost W039), take the obvious side path on the right at the junction that leads up to the hilltop of Tung Yeung Shan along the southwest slope. The path is not too steep but rugged that you would clamber it if required. At the hilltop, it offers a very open view and seems to be enclosed with the rolling hills nearby. To the south, you could overlook the rear of Kowloon Peak and the adjacent Cheung Shan. Toward the west, Tate's Ridge is just towering. Looking far northwestard, Sha Tin is also within the sight. Afterward, retrace the way downhill and continue the Wilson Trail.

Exit: If not to climb up the hilltop of Tung Yeung Shan, you could still follow the Wilson Trail ahead.

Summary

Climbing Tung Yeung Shan, it offers the splendid full view over Sai Kung and Sha Tin. It is said the nature is variable and unpredictable. During the uphill, all was peaceful with bird sound. In the downhill, everything seemed to become turbulent that wind rised and fogged heavily. The trees and leaves soughed strongly as if the nature raved loudly. But after the downhill, all was quiet again.
