Places shown in this photo: 

This panormama was taken in 1967. It appears the fields were still in use instead of being left fallow and the Luk Keng villages were still fully inhabited instead of left derelict. The white building across the Starling Inlet is the Sha Tau Kok Police Station which was at the border between Hong Kong and Shenzhen. The tall mountain is Wutong Shan. Shenzhen was a sleepy place back then. Now Shenzhen is a thriving city and Luk Keng is a sleepy place.

Location is approximate.  Will update the market if I have the chance for a site visit.  Google Earth showed a clear path upon its NE ridge.  As for the time being there are some photos and information in Chinese in Hong Kong Hiking Web, provided by JW and other fellow hikers.
