The route follows an effortless path. Yam O is a good place for photographing the lumber in water and you may hire a boat to have a closer shot.
Originally I planned climbing up to the top of the hill but was only able to find a bushy path. We finished the hike a lot sooner than expected and happened to see the ferry leaving at 1:10 p.m. (supposed to be 1:30 p.m.), fortunately we managed to board so we did not have to wait for the next one at 5:00 p.m.
