Tsing Yi Peak (or Tsing I Peak formerly) or Sam Chi Heung is a hill with three peaks occupying the southern half of the Tsing Yi Island, Hong Kong. The hill is situated on the western half of Victoria Harbour. Its peaks are good locations to observe the harbour and the channels among harbour islands. While situated in the south, a short hill Liu To Shan occupied the northwest of the island.
The three peaks align along north and south, and their heights increase from north to south. The highest south peak is of 334 metres. There is a paved trail linking three peaks and the hill is a hot spot of easy hiking. Two tunnels run beneath the hill. Cheung Tsing Tunnel goes through the north peak while Nam Wan Tunnel through the three peaks in diagonal. There is no vehicle access to the peaks.
The north peak is a mainly burial ground for indigenous inhabitants of Tsing Yi Island. The burial ground occupies the north-east quardrant of the peak. A covered service reservoir with two football pitches are also situated near the residential area, Cheung Ching Estate and Cheung Hong Estate. The paved trail starting near the Cheung Ching Bus Terminus made a way to the peak via football pitch and burial ground. Alternative paved trail to peak starts from Mayfair Gardens near a bus stop at Ching Hong Road.
The middle peak is more cone-shaped than the rest two. Great stones of various shapes gather at the highest points. An obstacle light was built by Civil Aviation Department near the stones. Interestingly, the middle peak is assigned as Hill No. 6 on the signboard of the light.
The south peak is the highest among three peaks. The top of the peak is relatively flat. A trigonometrical station is highest point on the Tsing Yi Island. Like the middle peak, an obstacle light was established to help aeroplanes avoiding the peaks at night. The peak is assigned as Hill No. 5 on its signboard. The south peak is a good situation to observe the south end of the Tsing Yi Island, Rambler Channel and Victoria Harbour. In a clear day, its south is surrounded by waters hugged by Kowloon Peninsula, Stonecutters Island, Hong Kong Island, Green Island, Kau Yi Chau, Peng Chau, Lantau Island, Tang Lung Chau and Ma Wan. Nearly a hundred ships are staying on the water. The Container Terminal 9 of Kwai Tsing Container Terminals is on its near shore and all others on another shore of Rambler Channel.
