Soaring at an altitude of 344 metres with pointed edges, High Junk Peak, the highest summit in Clearwater Bay Peninsula, is crowned as one of the three steepest climbs in Sai Kung along with Sharp Peak and Tai Yue Ngam Teng in Sai Kung East Country Park.  High Junk Peak Country Trail passes several bays, including Port Shelter, Clearwater Bay, as well as Joss House Bay, and runs through Clearwater Bay Country Park from the north to the south.  The path lays along ridges that separates Tseung Kwan O New Town from rural beauty, displaying how close country trails are to us.  If you look up at the 344-metre High Junk Peak from the hillside, the sloping mountain resembles an Indian tent.  Some say the mountain looks like a fisherman with a straw cape and a conical hat, which explains how High Junk Peak got its name.  Walking along the path towards Tin Ha Shan, you will be embraced by blue sky, turquoise water, and the surrounding mountains. On any clear days, you may even be able to view Ninepin Group and Basalt Island that are on the east of the city.  Near the ending point of the route is Joss House Bay, which holds a Tin Hau Temple that was built in 1266 and the most ancient local rock inscription, which was carved in 1274 in Southern Song period.  The inscription depicts the scene of salt administration officers visiting Fat Tong Mun with their friends and the history of the old temple.
