In particular, on the most recent occasion that I visited the area, I came across a rock climbing route that I personally would never go along. As it was, the closest to danger that I actually felt that I was this time around was when a couple of fierce-acting, loudly barking dogs temporarily barred the way to the scenic area east of Lei Yue Mun village and under the shadow of Devil's Peak that the friend I was with that day and I eventually did manage to get to!

and Mount Parker) from Devil's Peak
A nearby service reservoir with a rooftop area that I found
eye-catching (and appears environmentally greener than most)
After getting to the top of Devil's Peak, it's tempting to
sit a while and admire the scenic views to be had from there :)
As the existence of this rope attests to though, there are
people who seek more of an adrenaline rush at Devil's Peak!
The rocky eastern edge of Devil's Peak attracted just a fisherman
the day I went there but could easily tempt hikers seeking
more thrills than the hill's paved paths can offer
For this shutterbug, however, wandering about this level area
as well as up and down Devil's Peak paved paths was fine enough!
This especially since I got cool shots and views of goings on
on the water nearby as well as on land :)
