Transit to Cheung Ching Estate (MTR directions below). Start hiking uphill along the slope located opposite to the bus stop at Cheung Ching Estate. Turn right at the end of the stairs and another right when you reach a pavilion. Take the stairs ahead passing several cemeteries and you will see three adjoining peaks called Sam Chi Heung. You will see large container terminals but will have a blocked view by the pavilion and trees. Walk past this pavilion, turn right at the junction and you will see the obstacle light on the way up, and walk past this trigonometric station. Shortly after passing another obstacle light you will arrive at the viewpoint!
