The Three Sharp Peaks of Hong Kong (Chinese: 香港三尖) are a collection of three peaks that Hong Kong hikers deem as very challenging to summit because of loose rocks and steep inclination. The peaks are Castle Peak (583m) in Tuen Mun, Sharp Peak (468m) in Sai Kung and High Junk Peak (344m) in Clear Water Bay. The three peaks are scattered in different regions in Hong Kong. While Castle Peak is the tallest of the three, Sharp Peak is generally considered the hardest of the three because of its remoteness and steepness.
Three Sharp Peaks of Sai Kung [ edit ]
Hikers also have another list of three peaks called the Three Sharp Peaks of Sai Kung (District), a popular hiking spot in Hong Kong. They are the aforementioned Sharp Peak, High Junk Peak (which is in Clear Water Bay but technically in the Sai Kung District) and the remote Tai Yue Ngam Teng (233m) peak.
