Feng Bi Stream(ۼ)


5 March 2000


Trip Description

A stream full of climbing excitement, but also with very high risk. You are strongly not recommended to go there unless there is accompanying experienced climber who is familiar with the route and fully equipped with rope and harness. Otherwise you may be in great trouble!

Location: It is situated at the western side of Lantau Peak (Fung Wong Shan) in Lantau Island. Its upper end is at the peak of Fung Wong Shan and its lower end is Shek Pik Reservoir. It is better to take a bus to Ngong Ping and start the climb at the level of "Bu Lap Kei Ging"- a small path branched out from Lantau Trail because there is nothing special in the lower portion of this stream. You climb in the eastern direction grossly.

Altitude : 395M

Description : At the starting point, you can see a deep and steep valley. You go into it and a characteristic tree will appear soon
Description : You go upwards and a 60-feet "Fung Mo Waterfall" will stand in front of you
Description : You need to make a good climb on the left hand side- not easy for some people!
Description : Then you will stand in the middle portion of the waterfall
Description : At this time, you should look at the left hand side again to find a route on the cliff to climb up
Description : As it is impossible to go straight upwards the upper portion of this waterfall. This climb is more exciting and difficult than the previous one. Not a joke- don't fall or otherwise you may break yourself seriously.
When you reach a more flattened region on top of the cliff , you can appreciate a small path going to the left side. Walk along this path up to a point where is nothing for your feet to step on.
Description : That is the most dangerous area for the whole trip. Your adrenaline level will be at the explosive state. Stay calm. Take the rope and harness out and have somebody belaying you if don't want to bet your life.
Description : Despite that , you still need to have greatest courage to climb up a short cliff where there is only some loose soil and rocks on the surface and nothing below you!!!
Take a deep relaxation and a photo after this climb!
Description : The road in front will be much easier. You will reached at altitude 580m, HQ002634 (where the Lantau trail cuts across). Look upwards and you will see Lantau Peak Rocky Stream,
Description : The uppermost of it is Fung Wong Mun (Door of the Lantau Peak). It is a nice walk.
Description : With a funny rock collection of 50-feet high at the upper end- so called "Rocky Tower" with a window in it.
Description : Climb over the Tower and then walk along a narrow path upwards. At the last step , you will see the Door of Lantau Peak at an altitude of about 850m
Description : Look backwards and appreciate the great beauty behind you.
Description : If you were lucky , you can also admire the unforgettable sunset seen at the top of Lantau Peak at the altitude of 934m.
Walk along Lantau Trail in western direction afterwards to return to Ngong Ping where you can leave.
