Fei Ngo Shan Suicide Cliff 飛鵝山自殺崖
Hong Kong

Fei Ngo Shan Suicide Cliff 飛鵝山自殺崖先乘車至飛鵝山腳清水灣道,踏上飛鵝山道起步,上走不久,便轉進左邊分岔車路,未至飛鵝山道一號房屋前,在右邊山坡間有清晰登山起點。拾級而上,在樹叢間穿梭一會,便走至較開揚地帶,仰首欣賞飛鵝山的氣勢。續往上走,便來到一轉彎處,有石頭標記著「崎嶇」,指示往上走便是「崎嶇」之途。今天選擇較易的「高危」路線,便在此轉左上行。緩步而上,沿途為已被行友踏成的明確山徑,並不危險,只是走在陡直山坡畔,畏高者難免有點膽怯,不過能從高角度俯瞰山下樓景,景觀倒也不錯。上走至半山,便可看到隔鄰的陡直山坡,絕對有一瀉千里的氣勢。望壁續上走,可見直壁之上為巨大岩石山崖,這便是著名的自殺崖了。崖底為一突出的石台,是處不錯的觀景台,只是要踏足其上,便需不少勇氣。其實,飛鵝山上的山徑,並非如想象般崎嶇難行,只要事前有心理準備,在經驗豐富人士引領下,對不大熟悉山上環境的遊人,適時加以提點,亦無異於其他登山路線。至於「自殺崖」,實為主峰對下一幅巨岩,形勢險峭,壁立千仞,南面山脊上的步徑從側面山坡繞上崖頂,倘若循徑上行,心無旁騖,任它如何兇險,也難動遊者分毫。崖頂小片曠地,可供坐臥,惟附近懸崖四布,行動宜小心謹慎。立於崖頂四顧,除東九龍外,西貢牛尾海、清水灣半島,以至鯉魚門外宋崗、橫瀾小島,盡在視線範圍之內。越過「自殺崖」後,主峰已近在咫尺,兩座發射站之間,由附有欄杆的混凝土階連接,為山上最理想的一段步徑。The trail network around Kowloon Peak (Fei Ngo Shan) is unique. The four paths leading to the summit intersect like a cross-shape when looking from above. The eastern trail is opposite to the footpath towards Pak Fa Lam; the second one begins at the pavilion near Tung Shan due north of Kowloon Peak; the trailhead of the western path is located at Jats Incline; the southern one commences at No.1 Fei Ngo Shan Road, which involves a tough climb commonly known as the “Suicide Cliff”.

More About Hong Kong

Overview and HistoryHong Kong sits on the south coast of China, on the Pearl River Delta. It's got a population of more than seven million people and is one of the most densely populated places on earth. It also appears to be putting into place the template for population management, which cities around the world will be implementing as soon as they can afford it. More on that later.Archaeological evidence dates human activity beneath present-day Hong Kong back to the stone age. The area was first settled by people from the mainland during the Han dynasty, around the beginning of the common era (the P.C. term for when B.C. changed to A.D. Whoa!)For hundreds of years, Hong Kong was a small fishing community and haven for travelers, with a few pirates here and there. Then whitey showed up.Western influence reached China at the beginning of the 15th century, when all those great explorers in boats were cruising for loot in strange and mysterious places. Tea and silk were the commodities connecting eastern Europe to China, and Hong Kong was known as a safe harbor through which to pass. When you're carrying the Queen's tea, it's especially important to avoid ARRRRRRguments with pirates. Hyuk hyuk hyuk.Seriously folks -- in the eighteenth century Britain was doing a booming business with China, offering Indian opium to balance their extensive purchases of fine porcelains and everything else. The opium was ordained to be for medicinal purposes only, of course.Well, as you may imagine, the Chinese got sick of opium fiends junking up the place, so they attempted to stop the British suppliers, to no avail. The Opium Wars resulted and ended with China ceding Hong Kong to the British, in fear of their massive naval power. This took place in the year 1841.Colonization soon followed, Hong Kong shot up in value as an international port, and its population increased dramatically. In 1898 Britain acquired additional territories on a 99 year lease -- expiring in 1997. Does that year sound familiar? Read on.In the 20th century Hong Kong changed hands several times. The British surrendered it to Japan during World War Two, then took it back after Japan's defeat, then gave it to China later. Immediately following the war, Hong Kong served as a safe haven for hundreds of thousands of Chinese refugees, while the Chinese National Government was losing its civil war against communist leadership.The population of Hong Kong exploded as corporations seeking to escape Chinese isolationism arrived and set up shop. Cheap labor in the textile and manufacturing industries steadily built up the economy and ensured foreign investment. By the end of the 20th century Hong Kong had become a financial mammoth offering banking services to the world.In 1997 Hong Kong returned to Chinese rule with a few stipulations in place to guarantee its economic autonomy, as much as possible. The phrase "one country, two systems" was coined by the Chinese to describe the relationship between the mainland and Hong Kong.Getting ThereWell, where do you want to get to from the Hong Kong International Airport? There are ferries servicing six mainland ports in the Pearl River Delta Region. Airport Express Railway connects directly to downtown Hong Kong, and it has been rated the best airport in the world multiple times.The Airport Express Railway will get you into Hong Kong in about an hour, for $100. Public buses cost $10 and take a little longer. For direct service to your hotel you can take one of the hotel's private buses ($120+) or a taxi ($300+). As you can see, waiting time is optional for those who can afford it.Here's a little blurb on travel times, with further information for access to nearby cities (cross-boundary transport).TransportationGrab an Octopus card when you arrive. Octopus is the world's first electronic ticket-fare card system and the Hong Kong public transportation system is the world leader in people-moving. 90% of Hong Kongers get around on public transportation.Octopus covers the Airport Rail line, buses, ferries, the rapid-transit MTR network, supermarkets, fast food outlets, phone booths... It's how to get around the cashless economy.Nevermind the microchip built into it, you'll get used to having one of those on you at all times -- and soon they'll be internal! What do I mean? Many schools in Hong Kong even use the Octopus card to check attendance, because you read the card's data with an external scanner from a distance. This will the global norm soon. What if that chip is installed in your body? It's in the works baby!The hilly Hong Kong terrain also demands some special modes of transportation. If you've been to Pittsburgh, you may have some idea of how cool it is to ride a cable car up the side of a mountain, overlooking a majestic harbor and city. Multiply that by about ten thousand and you've got Hong Kong: vertical-travel trams, moving sidewalks, and the world's longest outdoor escalator system.People and CultureThe local currency is the Hong Kong dollar (HKD) which is pegged to the U.S. dollar. Official languages are Chinese and English.  You're on your own, baby!  Dive into the swarming, throbbing, pulsing, crawling and teeming mix!Things to do & RecommendationsThe Peak Tower and its shopping Galleria are the biggest tourist attraction in Hong Kong so don't miss it.Cool off in the Kowloon Park public indoor swimming pool!After that, go see what's happening at the Hong Kong Fringe Club, a non-profit organisation which puts together exhibitions for international artists and performers.Organize sports fans flock to the Hong Kong Stadium, but there's good news for disorganized sportistas too -- Mountain biking is now legal in the parks! Have at it, baby!All this excitement is going to make you hungry. Springtime is traditionally the time to celebrate seafood, summer is for fruits, and winter steams with hot pot soups to keep you warm.The best thing to do is go and find some dim sum. Dozens of plates of tasty small items, sort of like sushi but it's cooked, and the varieties are endless.Since you won't be able to walk down the street without complete and total sensory overload, I'll just whap in the Hong Kong tourist board's guide to dining and leave you to your intuition.Good luck, take it slow and above all -- DON'T SPIT OUT YOUR CHEWING GUM ON THE SIDEWALK. Gum is legal but there's a $500 fine for intentional littering. Enjoy!Text by Steve Smith.
