HIGH JUNK PEAK
釣魚翁郊遊徑

Leaving the enormous new dormitory town of Tseung Kwan O, our old but air-conditioned minibus weaves its way up to the back of the gnarly
Clearwater Bay Road in the southeastern New Territories.  

We alight at a crest to follow a well-maintained dirt trail down the length of the Clearwater Bay Peninsula. As we gradually gain altitude, we
first enjoy the views over Port Shelter towards Sai Kung and numerous islands. Later, as we walk along the ridge, we look across Junk Bay
towards the new town of Tseung Kwan O and, finally, Hong Kong Island comes into view. We will also be looking down at the white sandy
beaches of Clearwater Bay and out towards the Ninepin Islands...

Towards the end of the trail we have to climb Tin Ha Shan.  The climb is fairly steep, but the views from the windswept top over the island of
Tung Lung Chau and the eastern entrance to Hong Kong's Victoria Harbour are brilliant and well worth that final effort.

Descending from Tin Ha Shan might well be the day's biggest challenge, but we will take it easy and stop frequently to enjoy the magnificent
view. The descent ends at Fat Tong Mun's old Tin Hau temple, which is Hong Kong's oldest and largest Tin Hau Temple. It is said to have been
built in 1266 by Lam Tao-Yi and is, alledgedly, the most popular Tin Hau temple both for fishermen and for others in Hong Kong.

From the temple, it is just a short walk down a quiet road to the small fishing hamlet of Po Toi O, where we suggest ending the outing with a
lunch at one of the waterfront seafood restaurants.
