Sharp Peak, also known as Nam She Tsim (蚺蛇尖), is a hill which lies within the Sai Kung East Country Park,[1] north of Tai Long Wan, in the Sai Kung Peninsula in Hong Kong. It is particularly well known for its well defined sharp peak, which rises to a height of 468 metres (1,535 ft) above sea level.[1] The hill is reasonably hard for hikers and should only be attempted in good weather with correct equipment, although it is a popular site for hiking in Hong Kong.
