Rock Carving at Lung Ha Wan (Lung Ha Wan, Sai Kung)
Discovered in 1978 by a group of hikers, the Lung Ha Wan Rock Carving is located on a vertical face of a badly weathered boulder facing east. The design shows geometric patterns, some may resemble stylised animals or bird forms. There is though another school of thought suggesting that it is purely the work of nature. While this academic discussion still continues, the rock carving, or pattern, has been protected under the Antiquities & Monuments Ordinance. This would allow the opportunity for it to be further studied.
Rock Carving at Lung Ha Wan was declared a monument in 1983.
