Afterward gently descent to Nam She Au, the leg of challenging uphill begins.

Notice:You could clamber up if required!

The rough path follows the clear ridgeline with a steep ascent and is full of loose gravel because of weathering. You might clamber up if required. Up to a smooth ridge, pausing for breath, you could look back to the cliff edge of the ridge just walked through. Head the trail, it runs steeply up towards the southern ridge of Sharp Peak, and becomes steeper near the summit. After a steep and strenuous climb, it leads you up to the hilltop.

At the summit, you are enclosed among the splendid scenery. Overlook northward, Ko Lau Wan and farther Port Island could be seen. Gazing down, aquamarine Nam She Wan and the coast known as “Thousand Stream” are also within sight. Towards southeast, it offers a stunning panoramic view over the indented coastline of Ham Tin Wan, Tai Wan and Tung Wan. To the west, the rugged contour of rolling hills in Sai Kung also feast your eyes.
