Start your hike at the trail behind the pavilion at the junction of Sham Wat Road and Keung Shan Road.  Follow the signs and pay a visit to ‘Knee-cap Peak’(Kwun Yam Shan), whose outline resembles the shape of a knee for a sweeping panoramic view of the Shek Pik Reservoir.  Deep in the woodland of Kwun Yam Shan stands the ancient Kwun Yam Temple, which was built in the 2nd year of Xuantong, 1910.  It is a temple that will surely catch your eyes – its exterior walls are painted in vermilion and its dome golden.  In fact, it attracts crowds of worshippers and tourists every year.  Descend from Kwun Yam Shan to Keung Shan at 459 metres, which links Ling Wui Shan to the west.  The 3.5-kilometre Ling Wui Shan stretches from the north east to the south west across five peaks, separating Tai Long Wan and Yi O.  Head westwards from the main summit of Keung Shan along the Lantau Trail, where the terrain is flat and fertile, a large scraps of green lawns is found.  Walking past the grassland, you will reach the Keung Shan Country Trail, which leads to Man Cheung Po Campsite.  Relax as you admire the breathtaking sight of waterfalls cascading down the mountainside and the beautiful sound of birds chirping in the woods.
