The starting point of Section 6 is a pleasant place
to relax. At Distance Post L051, a path goes
out to the Keung Shan catchwater. Another 100
metres along brings one to a crystal clear stream
by the road. The stream flows past the south
foot of Tsim Fung Shan originated from Nga Ying
Shan and runs down to the intersection on Tai
O Road, where a famous stone carve was found.
Below the mountain, Tai O Road passes between
Sze Shan and Tsim Fung Shan and continues to
the Tai O lowlands, a small alluvial plain. We
continue in a northerly direction towards Tai
O. Beside this intersection there is a small
pavilion, named Nan Yam Ting with a rock tablet
inscription. At Tai O newcomers are struck by
the traditional feel of this fishing village.
Its stilt houses and old customs are far removed
from the fast life of modern Hong Kong. The stilt
houses, mostly made of iron plates, are supported
on wooden piles. Between the houses are many
streams, and boats ferry people around the community.
