Peak is the second highest mountain on Lantau Island, just behind Lautau Peak. At 800 meters above sea level, a couple dozen of stone shacks scatter over the highland between Sunset Peak and Yi Tung Shan. These shacks, also known as the Lantau Mountain Camp, can be traced back to almost 90 years ago. They were built by foreign missionaries as bungalows in the 20s. At present some of the shacks are managed by organizations and some others are privately owned.

Sunset Peak is accessible by following Lantau Trail Section Two, either from Pak Kung Au or Nam Shan. For a longer trek, one may take the uphill path at Pak Mong which leads to the peak via Lin Fa Shan.
