Keung Shan Country Trail goes down south at Fan Shui Au before reaching the Kau Ling Chung Catchwater.  The entire footpath, paved with mountain rocks, is full of natural characteristics.  To the north is the spectacular Che Hing Monastery, hidden in a pine forest like an Arcadia, as well as Lung Tsai Ng Yuen, set in magnificent mountainous scenery.  The stroll down to the catchwater is level and pleasant.  Located 200 metres from the trail, Kau Ling Chung Campsite boasts a fine white beach, and a picturesque setting of bridges arching over running river with shady trees in the surroundings.  On a knoll to its east stand a viewing point and the South Lantau Obelisk.  Specifically, the obelisk stands on a hill 60 metres above Kau Ling Chung, surrounded by the sea on its three sides with a wide view.  It was erected in 1902 by British Military subsequent to the signing of the Sino-British Convention for the Extension of Hong Kong Territory on 9 June 1898 to mark the boundary.
