And you can still clearly see the old tea terraces that climb all the way to the top of Tai Mo Shan, still just visible today in a few areas.

Hi there. Would it be possible to get a higher resolution version of Mr Panter's images of the 1957 Hong Kong Army article about Route Twisk and Sek Kong village? I grew up in nearby Lui Kung Tin Village. My dad was Chung Ming On, who was the proprietor of On Kee Farms, serving the Sek Kong camp with fresh vegetables for many many years. I still live in the village and have seen the Sek Kong camp go through many changes. I have never seen the wonderful photos and story from the Army News article though and would love to print out a nice version to share with my visitors!

Thank you so much for your wonderful website!

Best wishes,

Abe Chung
