Going up from the Keung Shan picnic site at the junction of Section 4 and Section 5 of the Lantau Trail and walk for 1 km, hikers arrive at Kwun Yam Shan. Go ahead, half hidden in the soft green forest, a fine golden dome to the right catches our attention. Beneath the dome is a red temple. This is the Kwun Yam Temple of Keung Shan, one of the best known temples on Lantau Island.

Keung Shan in 459 metres links to another mountain, Ling Wui Shan which rises to 490 metres and is the highest of the nearby peaks, while five peaks stand between them. The mountain massif of Ling Wui Shan spreads from east to west across the part of Lantau, with over three kilometres separating the sea between Tai Long Wan and Yi O. The downhill journey from the summit of Ling Wui Shan is a challenging one. When you see Distance Post L047, continue for another 100 metres and you will see a colourful flying dragon sculpture. The dragon, set vividly on rocks, is 6 metres long. In a spirited posture, it overlooks the whole Man Cheung Po plain. This lifelike and majestic sculpture is a popular background for hiking photos. Returning to the Lantau Trail from the flying dragon, a short trail leads down to the nestling flat land at Man Cheung Po.
