  • The path leading to the top is shrubbery and not shaded.
  • The path descending from Tai Tun is treacherous and indistinct. Recommended for experienced hikers with greater physical strength.
SummaryThe summit of Tai Tun is a great vantage for enjoying the panorama view of the offshore islets in Cham Chuk Wan. The uphill path was densely vegetated and it is arduous getting down the slope.
EpilogueHaving been disappointed by a gloomy view on an overcast day nine months ago, I climbed up Tai Tun, attempting to take a few good shots on the summit. Luck was on my side this time. The weather was excellent today, clear and bright, though it was steaming hot.

After parking the car at Pak Tam Chung, I climbed up the indistinct path leading straight up to the top. It was particularly tough walking through the shrubbery trail. I was short of breath when I was half-way up.

A cop was missing while hiking in Sai Kung just a couple of days ago. There was not a soul to be seen and I felt a bit uneasy. Feeling exhausted, I got to the summit. The platform there is a beautiful resting place, overlooking the scattered islets in Cham Chuk Wan. I spent a long time taking pictures and admiring the sweeping view alone.

Following a treacherous descent, I returned to Pak Tam Chung. As it was still early, I drove to Nai Chung, hoping to keep up the good mood. The distance was short but I enjoyed the freedom driving brought me under the glorious sky.
