Set out at the crossing of Fei Ngo Shan Road and Clear Water Bay Road. Follow Fei Ngo Shan Road til seeing a "328" mark in red, which is the trailhead of the eastern path. From there climb up to the top and then head right, crossing Middle Hill and walk downhill towards Tung Shan. Pass beneath the pylon and join the Fei Ngo Shan Road.
Turn left and continue on to Shatin Pass. Take the steps on the left and finally drop to Tsz Wan Kok.

Take the side path towards Pak Fa Lam and return to Fei Ngo Shan Road via Pak Fa Lam Road
  • The trailhead of the path leading to the top is opposite to the footpath descending to Pak Fa Lam, not Pak Fa Lam Road
  • Some paths are overgrown and beware of the cliffs
  • The path descending from Middle Hill is gravelly and fairly steep
The eastern path leading up to Kowloon Peak is well-defined. The route offers a bird’s eye view over Sai Kung and you may be greeted with golden Chinese Silver Grass in autumn. However, the top stands a TV Transmitting Station and the pylons are rather distracting.
The trail network around Kowloon Peak (Fei Ngo Shan) is unique. The four paths leading to the summit intersect like a cross-shape when looking from above. The eastern trail is opposite to the footpath towards Pak Fa Lam; the second one begins at the pavilion near Tung Shan due north of Kowloon Peak; the trailhead of the western path is located at Jats Incline; the southern one commences at No.1 Fei Ngo Shan Road, which involves a tough climb commonly known as the “Suicide Cliff”.

The southern cliffs, when looking up from Clear Water Bay Road, soar into the sky, no wonder why it is named “Suicide Cliff” and considered the toughest among the four paths.

We took the easiest path, the eastern one, for our first attempt. This trail is rather clear and some steps are even strengthened with wooden blocks. The northern path is a bit eroded and slippery but it only took us a while to the level path bringing us to Tung Shan.
