Welcome to Hong Kong- great atmosphere in the city as well as out. If you're coming from the monastery be prepared for a climb. It's worth it but there's some big elevation to climb in a short period so take breaks if you need. I saw only one person coming the way we came, Everyone else was coming from the other direction. The trail head is a ways back behind the monastery, you'll pass old an housing quarters/boarding home and what looks like an old restaurant. The initial climb is the hardest , mostly boulder size steps until you get to a clearing at the top with some large rocks to climb on for decent views. Some advice: it was mostly out in the open so if its hot, be prepared. The second stint is another short scramble to the top where you'll find a small shelter and 12-20 folks with selfie sticks. There are also large rocks to climb out on to get a better view. We hiked through to the other end and caught a bus back to HK.
