Tai Yue Ngam Teng

Head the trail down not far, it soon takes the left side path (its entrance is just oppsite to a signpost of MacLehose Trail) that is obvious. There are also some ribbons as marks for guidance at its entry and along the way, but part of the sections cut through the thick woods. Along the path down, you could see the hill of Tai Yue Ngam Teng near the coast. Descending to the slightly obscure junction, take the left fork. Through the thickets, it opens up that the pathway to the hill could be clearly seen. Further down, it turns gentle and comes to the grassy patches. At that time, you could overlook the beach of Long Ke Tsai from there. In the sunshine, it is enjoyable in the country setting with the lush greenery, the birdsong and the fragrant flowers on the hillsides. Head to the junction, then go ahead. Afterward, it winds gently up and climbs to the hilltop along the ridge beyond the hillside.

Summary

At Tai Yue Ngam Teng, the four famous white sand beaches and the Sharp Peak in Sai Kung could be seen surprisingly from an unique angle. In additions, it is remarkable for the peninsula of Tsang Pang Kok like a huge whale, and at the extreme of its headland as if it was at the end of the Earth. However, the trail is slightly long and rugged in part with less shade trees along the way, recommend to equip well before setting out.
