South Lantau Country Trail begins in Nam Shan and its hillside commands the full vista of the south part of Lantau Island.  The well-shaded and scenic path is a popular destination in summer, with a lot of massive rocks and flowing water from streams and cascades.  Stretching across Lantau Peak and Sunset Peak, the country trail offers hikers a clear view of the two towering mountains from below.  Beyond Tung Chung Road along the southeastern slope is the Tong Fuk Catchwater, which commands a wide panorama of Cheung Sha Beach, Tong Fuk, Cha Kwo Chau, Shek Kwu Chau, and the Soko Islands.
