1471007900_Hint Comments Tiu Shau Ngam is the first exciting hill, it is vertical and clambering is required. After Tiu Shau Ngam, there is a narrow road to the second and third hill – The Hunch Backs and Ma On Shan. At the top of the hills, there is open view of Sai Kung Kei Ling Ha Hoi. After sloping down Ma On Shan, if you watch back to Ma On Shan, you will find the peak astonishing.
