Trip Description

This trip covered two hills. Both are rather easy. If each hills were considered individually, I would put these two hills under Easy Walk section. It is however, the route connecting Razor Hill and Mauwushan is rather challenging so I gives this route two stars difficult level.

Location 1

Altitude : 150M

Description : This was our start point, right opposite to Shaw House.
Location 2

Altitude : 185M

Description : Here we had to leave the main road and dashed into the bush by the fence.
Location 3

Altitude : 260M

Description : This is an ideal location for nearby dwellers to have morning exercise.
Location 4

Altitude : 395M

Description : We are getting close to Razor Hill (鷓鴣山).
Location 5

Altitude : 432M

Description : Resting on the top of Razor Hill (鷓鴣山)
Location 6

Altitude : 285M
Description : Here we have to walked under some housing structure in Pik Wu Au (壁屋凹).

Location 7

Altitude : 255M

Description : After the housing structure, we went back to a forest but the footpath suddenly vanished in dense bushes. We had to overcome several meters of disorientating bushes before we could locate the path on the ridge.
Location 8

Altitude : 233M
Description : This is Mauwushan (茅湖山) top. It is furnished as another ideal place for morning exercise. This hill top has nothing special but it has something worth checking out: an abandoned outpost.

Location 9

Altitude : 220M

Description : From the construction style, this outpost was probably built in the early days of British occupation. It is bad that it is now tainted by graffiti.
