Section 2 of the Lantau Trail begins just beyond
the Lantau archway at Nam Shan barbecue site.
Going up the footpath the stone steps fit the
side of the hill. There is a helipad and the
Nam Shan Country Park Management Centre is just
nearby. Beyond the helipad, a walk along the
southeast of Yi Tung Shan brings us to more challenging
slopes and terrain. After making a detour at
the Height 534, the scenery changes. The footpath
at Sheung Tung Au leads towards Lin Fa Shan.
The northern edge of Yi Tung Shan is reached
if one continues west. About another 800 metres
farther on, there is an information board beside
the road marking the start point of Wong Lung
Hang Country Trail. Up on the 700 metres high
slopes of Sunset Peak and Yi Tung Shan, the Stone
Chalet at Sunset Peak is a great place to visit.
Section 2 of the Lantau Trail crosses here. Going
down from Sunset Peak, enjoy the scenery. The
most attractive view is out over Cheung Sha Beach,
which stretches on alongside South Lantau Road.
The road at Pak Kung Au connects the northern
and southern sides of Lantau. From here buses
go to Tung Chung on the northern side or to Tai
O, Ngong Ping and Mui Wo Ferry Pier on the southern
side. Or you can continue along Section 3 of
the Lantau Trail, which begins here.
