Cheung Sheung, surrounded by steep spurs, is one of those rare marshes situated on a plateau.  The word ‘Cheung’ and the uniquely magnificent views stem from the surrounding layers of mountains.  Located in Sai Kung West Country Park, the trail presents hikers with scenes of Shek Uk Shan, the highest crest in Sai Kung, and Cheung Sheung Plateau, along Hoi Ha Road to the peak.  On the return trip, the trail amazes hikers with a panoramic view of the Three Fathoms Cove on the west.  Cheung Sheung Village owns a shabby stone house, an abandoned rainfall measurement station and an old village school that was used by anti-Japanese Guerrillas as a communications base.  The derelict village school holds on to history that cannot be forgotten among Hongkongers.  To arrive Yung Shue O Village, the destination of the trip, hikers have to go through the challenge of passing through series of steep and long stone steps, known as Jacob’s Ladder, situated at Au Mun.  If you are ready to take the challenge to the next level physically and mentally, you can get to Cheung Sheung with a reverse route that requires climbing up Jacob’s Ladder.
