On the slope at the starting point of Section 3 of the Lantau Trail, the Chinese name of Pak Kung Au is carved on three rocks. Pak Kung means God of the Land. The guardian spirit of each place. Go up the steps from Pak Kung Au, and when you reach 400 metres the terrain becomes gentler. At Distance Post L020 the trail has a junction. Going along the Lantau Trail to the west, the terrain becomes steeper. At about 700 metres a huge rock lies on the mountain slope. Through a gap in the rock one can see down to Tong Fuk Village, and that is the well-known Nam Tin Mun. About one kilometre beyond Nam Tin Mun, the summit of Lantau Peak is not too far away. Keep going and you see a steep 'Ladder' of about 70 degrees, this Ladder of stone steps climbs the mountainside with the steps up to knee high. This is the toughest section of the Lantau Trail. And, especially going down, hikers must take care. After the hard climb down along the Sky Reaching Ladder, passing through the large wooden archway, it comes into Lantau Trail Section 4.
