Leung Tin Au Valley
|"Leung Tin Au" refers to a
mountain valley above Tuen Mun Shan King Estate and Leung
King Estate. Due to long-term weathering and erosion, a
canyon has been formed and has become a popular hiking
hotspot. It is also known as the Hong Kong version of the
Grand Canyon. It is often called "Pineapple Mountain
Canyon". In fact, according to official maps, "Leung Tin Au
Valley" is a more appropriate name.

|The light rail station is just
across the road from Exit B of Siu Hong Station.
|After getting off at San Wai
Station, walk in the opposite direction and cross the
railway to enter Leung King estate. The trail is on the
other side of the estate.
|After passing through Leung King
Estate, you can see a road, which is the Castle Peak Army
Road, is also the starting point for the Leung Tin Au
|Most of this road is a slope, but
fortunately, almost the whole road is a concrete road, so as
long as you walk slowly, it will not be too difficult.
|There is a pavilion here called
"Pineapple Mountain Pavilion". I don't know if this is the
reason, so the "Leung Tin Au Valley" is called "Pineapple
Mountain Valley" ?
|There is a big iron gate and
a blue warning sign on this road to warn people that in
front is the shooting range.
People's Liberation Army Hong Kong Garrison issued a notice
in 2017 stating that the area around the Castle Peak Range
is a military restricted zone, and ordinary people are
prohibited from entering, and the big iron gate is locked.
However, the road is the main route for nearby residents'
daily leisure walks and exercises, and the door locks are
often cut. Later, the large iron gate was opened. If there
is a target practice in the shooting range, a red warning
sign will be displayed to inform the public, and the road
will be closed.

|There are some stone chairs and
tables built by nearby residents spontaneously by the
roadside for rest.
|After coming to this small
flatland, there will be three roads, left to the Castle
Peak; the middle and right roads are both to the valley, the
middle road is easier to walk, so we choose the middle road.
|There is another resting place.
|Looking back at Castle Peak.
|Next, it will turn a big turn, and
then to another hill.
|After reaching another hill, the
weathered and eroded appearance can already be seen.
|You can also look Shenzhen into the
distance from here.
|Behind the warning sign is Leung
Tin Au Valley. There is a warning sign, then must be a
reason. So whether you are visiting or taking photos, you
must pay more attention to the road under your feet to avoid

deep, so be careful.

Valley is slowly expanding.
