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.
