Alight when the bus starts to climb a little bit uphill & look for this Monastery before it turns to the right
(China Light & Power).  

Make your way up to the winding road of SHATIN PASS and  locate this PAGODA. Around this are, you will see a lot of Hikers, Runners & Bike Riders during the weekends because this is the center of everything. You will  find the mini store and as well as the lavatory. This junction also serves to all the trails such as Lion Rock, Amah Rock, Gilwell Campsite, Ma On Shan's Buffalo Hill, of course Fei Ngo Shan and many others.

This will be the starting area of your adventure to Fei Ngo Shan.  There's a viewing point  if you climb up to stairs
(But that is not where you start your way to Fei Ngo Shan). Your way point is at the right-side where the blue portable lavatory is placed.

Just walk around the right side of this section and you can easily find your way  towards the highest peak in Kowloon.

This will serve as your first challenge after passing under the Electric Post.  When you reach to the top, be sure to take a break, look around the 360 view and probably take a few pictures of the beautiful scenery.

The fascinating beauty of FEI NGO SHAN. Only a couple hills  to get to the summit of it. Around this are is where you can have a little rest, a light snack, a few drinks and photography session.
(This section of the trail is really nice)

When you reach the part were you can see the "H" sign, well that for the helicopter  to land on during rescue mission. You will need take the stairs on the right side to get to this summit marker.  

After spending a few second at the Summit, you will need to take this short stairs on your downhill process. You will need to skip around the left side of that round building. (Be sure to skip carefully around this area because any sudden miscalculations could cause fatal accident). 

Here is your downhill scenery! Go ahead and scream! ...there are visible path to get to the end point, but beware of the ending area because there's a house next to it with a dog & without leash and it chased people ^_^ 

Take the green minibus #1 to get to Choi Hung MTR station or take the double decked bus 91 to
Diamond Hill Station (Fear not to get lost because the terminal of this bus is at the MTR Station).

Friendly Reminder
Enjoy Your Country Park, Enjoy Hiking and Leave No Trace!
