The long-distance trail over Kai Kung Leng runs along the ridge and involves demanding elevation and descent. Visitors will be awarded with magnificient mountain landscape comparable to Pat Sin Leng in the Northeast Territories.
It was an exhausting walk along the unsheltered trail of Kai Kung Leng, not to mention the hot and humid air in summer day with a temperature of 34oC . We were run out of water when we arrived Tsiu Keng, after a difficult descent through the densely vegetated path.

Later that day, we learned from the news that two men had got heat stroke while hiking around Plover Cove Reservoir. One was found dead and the other was unconscious. I couldn't help but wonder it might have happened to us if we had exposed to sun longer that day.
