Stage 10 is very similar to stage 8, as it is just a continuation of a previous stage. Apart from a few steps in the beginning it is a really flat 6.5km walk from Shui Hau to Tung Chung road, along a catchment area.
However, there are a few things that set this hike apart. First of all, we had to make our way through a typical village cemetery along dirt and stone paths, where we saw lots of stone urns next to each other.
They were grouped together, in little families.
Some of them showed signs of recent money burning activities – there were a few bank notes laying around, waiting for the deceased to pick them up and use them in the afterlife.
We climbed a few stairs, making about 80m height difference in a few minutes and after that it was all flat along the water catchment area.
Halfway along the hike we passed the Ma Po Ping Prison, which is a medium-security prison housing around 650 prisoners.
Apart from that it was a very boring hike, and we were very glad that we only continued on stage 10 after completing stage 9, otherwise it would have been a wasted bus trip to walk from Shui Hau to Cheung Sha Beach.
The only other highlight was the paraglider who flew from sunset peak to Cheung Sha beach.
It was a short, quick flight and we watched him for a few minutes before getting on a bus to Mui Wo and enjoying a tasty Turkish lunch at the ferry pier.
