Orientation & Geography

Asia, Hong Kong, Hong Kong

Sha Tin Pass (traditional Chinese: 沙田坳) or Shatin Pass, and sometimes Sha Tin Au, is a mountain pass between Temple Hill and Unicorn Ridge in Hong Kong. The pass is located north of the populous area of Tsz Wan Shan. It was one of major accesses from Kowloon south to Sha Tin north before the construction roads and railway. The British Army built a road, Shatin Pass Road from Kowloon to the pass and some village in Sha Tin District but not to the town of Sha Tin. Stage 4 of Wilson Trail and Stage 5 of MacLehose Trail split at the pass. Sheng Kung Hui has a site of Diocesan Youth Retreat House at the pass.
