Elevation (reference only)

Castle Peak is located in western New Territories, with a height of 583 meters. Because of its steep inclination, Castle Peak is named one of the “Three Sharp Peaks of Hong Kong” (others are Sharp Peak and High Junk Peak). The route of Castle Peak is not very long, but the elevation and the loose rock surface make it difficult, it also needs to notice the direction, it will be very dangerous into the Castle Peak Hinterland, it is suggested to walk accompanied by experienced leaders.
