Adorned with a seemingly limitless sea of silvergrass at an elevation of 869 metres and 749 metres respectively, Sunset Peak and Yi Tung Shan have not only been a paradise for hiking enthusiasts, but also a magnet for photography aficionados.  You can reach them by walking along the stone steps from the barbecue site at Nam Shan Au, the start point of Section Two of the Lantau Trail.  In Autumn, you can see the 20 stone chalets of the Lantau Mountain Camp stand among the silvergrass.  The stone sheds, each standing around three metres, were made of granite transported manually from Mui Wo.  They served as a place for spiritual formation and holiday accommodation for British missionaries in the 20th century, and are now vacation rentals for foreigners as well as a popular check-in location.  Follow the stone steps leading down from Sunset Peak to Pak Kung Au.  On the way you can look at Hong Kong’s longest beach, Cheung Sha Beach, which spans three kilometres.  Section Two is not as easy as it looks; it is best defined by its steeply undulating terrain, so hikers intending to complete it should keep an eye on their fitness level.
