To embark on the journey, hikers set off in Tung Chung and pass through Chek Lap Kok New Village.  Thanks to the construction work of Hong Kong International Airport in Chek Lap Kok, Chek Lap Kok New Village and Tin Hau Temple, which was built in the third year of Daoguang in the Qing Dynasty (the year of 1822), were relocated to the current location.  The statues, doors, and incense burners, made of granite, are highly valuable from the historical and artistic perspectives.  Beginning next to Wong Lung Hang Picnic Site, Wong Lung Hang Country Trail starts off with countless stairs but later reward hikers with a close view of the well-known Wong Lung Fall and spectacular views of the Three Dragon Gorge, with the international airport on the northwest.  More than 20 tributaries from the uplands of Lin Fa Shan, Yi Tung Shan, and Sunset Peak converge and form Wong Lung Hang, which is named as such because every time after heavy rain, muddy water flows like a dragon that twirls in the gorge and dashes towards Tung Chung Bay.  Having its ending point located up at Sheung Tung Au, which is 690 metres high, the trail is demanding enough for hiking beginners.  After the physical challenge, then scenic beauty of Sunset Peak and Yi Tung Shan awaits.
