What with the afternoon's hike route also taking the friend I was with and I past a small reservoir and a couple of disused prisons as well as yielding up some cool critter spottings and scenic vistas, there really were plenty of interesting sights to be had. So suffice to say that I was clicking away quite a bit with my camera while on Chi Ma Wan peninsula -- and, actually, was doing so on the 30 minute or so trek from the nearest bus station to the beginning of the trail that took us to this remote section of Hong Kong! ;b
Atop the rocky hill pictured above is a shrine...
Many scenic vistas are to be had on the way up
the Chi Ma Wan peninsula's second highest hill :)
There's a trigonometrical station along with a shrine
up on 301-meter-high Miu Tsai Tun
On an afternoon where the clouds were on the low-lying side,
I was glad we weren't climbing to much higher ground that day
I must admit to not being too happy to discover
that we actually had go down many steps before
we could begin our ascent up the neighboring hill! ;(
The fire lookout on 303-meter-high Lo Yan Shan
doesn't look like it's manned all year round...
...and it also is one of those parts of the Big Lychee
where skink spottings can be made! :)
