Victoria Peak is known as one of the best spots to enjoy the Hong Kong cityscape at night. However, not many people know Section 4 of the Wilson Trail offers comparable views, as you can watch the sun bid the city good evening and illuminate the entire Kowloon East from Tung Shan Pavilion. Stretching from Tseng Lan Shue to Sha Tin Pass, the route starts amidst cool woodland and a flat ancient trail that connects Ho Chung, Sai Kung to Kowloon. Once the main route for villagers to get to Kowloon, the ancient trail leads down to the village of Tai Lam Wu, where you can see the largest butterfly in Hong Kong, Common Birdwing with a bit of luck. The end of the catchwater marks the most difficult part of the section, which is also the part that ascends into the hills. The scenery up the hill is a stark contrast to that of the opening part; it offers a breathtaking panorama – in front are Fei Ngo Shan and Cheung Shan ranged in a line while at the back is the picturesque Pak Sha Wan. A brief walk from Fei Ngo Shan Road to Tung Shan will take you to a pavilion, which overlooks Kowloon East and former Kai Tak Airport, and boasts spectacular views of Lion Rock and Beacon Hill. Continue along Sha Tin Pass Road to Sha Tin Pass, and you will pass through Kwun Yum Temple, where, as the icing on the cake, you can drop by Lover’s Rock to pray for a happy marriage, before heading downhill towards Tsz Wan Shan.
