Hiking

Hsien Ku Fung (仙姑峰) is at the east end of Pak Sin Leng mountain range and Wilson Trail Stage 9, and it is one of the best peaks to get a 360-degree view of the nature of northeast New Territories.

To the east is Plover Cove Reservoir, the first “reservoir in sea” over the world. Hikers can also see the Sharp Peak in Sai Kung when the sky is clear.

To the south is Tai Mei Tuk, one of the most beautiful rural villages in Hong Kong. The Plover Cove provides a perfect bay area for the Tai Mei Tuk Water Sports Center.

To the west is the stately Pak Sin Leng mountain range, consisting of 8 peaks, named after 8 immortals in Chinese mythology: Shun Yeung Fung (純陽峰), Chung Li Fung (鐘離峰), Kuai Li Fung (拐李峰), Kao Lao Fung (果老峰), Hsien Ku Fung (仙姑峰), Sheung Tsz Fung (湘子峰), Tsao Kau Fung (曹舅峰) and Choi Wo Fung (采和峰).

To the north is the Plover Cove Country Park, one of the most untouched areas in Hong Kong.

Start from Tai Mei Tuk, follow Pak Sin Leng Nature Trail and turn left when you see the Wilson Trail sign. Walk all the way up to Hsien Ku Fung. Most of the trail is covered by shade, so it is a popular trail in summer.
