Introduction:
The junction between Section 7 and Section 8 of the Lantau Trail is at the entrance to Kau Ling Chung Campsite. Nearby stands a viewing point and the Obelisk (South). The viewing point, 95 metres above sea level, is a stone tower. The names of nearby places are inscribed on the tower, so hikers can locate the area's main features. Its high position commands excellent all-round views. Its origins date back to 1898, when the Chinese and British governments signed the Sino-British Treaty which added the New Territories to the colony. Four years later, in 1902, the obelisk was erected to indicate the new sea boundary. Section 8 of the Lantau Trail follows the water catchwater to Shek Pik. This section is over five kilometres long wide, level and well shaded. Four picnic sites have been placed along here, making some of Lantau's pettiest and most accessible outing areas. All along Section 8 there are impressive sea views.
