High Junk Peak (Chinese: 釣魚翁; lit.: 'Kingfisher') is a mountain that lies within Clear Water Bay Country Park, Hong Kong. It is hailed as one of the three sharp peaks in Hong Kong (with the other two sharp peaks of Hong Kong being Sharp Peak and Castle Peak) because of its precipitous incline. It is a major attraction inside Clear Water Bay Country Park, Sai Kung, New Territories, Hong Kong.
Geography [ edit ]
Access [ edit ]
High Junk Peak Country Trail runs through the foot of High Junk Peak, west of the Summit. The fastest (but more challenging) way of reaching the summit of High Junk Peak involves starting on a gentle hike at Sheung Sze Wan (KMB Bus 91; Public Light Bus 16/103/103M) up to High Junk Peak Country Trail Marker C3106, and then making a sharp rightward U-turn that would lead you to the summit. The upper path to the summit is rather rugged and not maintained by the government, so proper hiking footwear is advisable. Another way of reaching the summit is through a rough ridge walk from Miu Tsai Tun in the north. This is the longer and less popular option, but it does provide great vantage points for photographers seeking to take pictures of High Junk Peak from Miu Tsai Tun.
