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.
