Shuen Wan Country Park
Shuen Wan country park in the north-east of Hong Kong is characterised by low, flowing hills and the seas of Double Haven with its many islands.
From Fanling MTR station we take taxi to the small village of Luk Keng, the starting point of this relatively easy, 15 km long hike.
We walk first through farmland, then through woodland to the old Hakka village of Lai Chi Wo (map marker 1). After exploring the village we continue along the shores of Double Haven to Sam A Chung for lunch (map marker 2). Then we follow the footpath to Wu Kau Tang, and end up at the famous Bride's Pool area where we can admire two of Hong Kong's best waterfalls, the Bride's Pool fall and the Mirror Pool fall, and of course the Mirror Pool itself.
From there we take a taxi or bus to Tai Po Market MTR station.
This tour is available in weekends only, as then the restaurants are open.
Price includes guide fee.
Add about HKD 300 for taxi fares and about HKD 100-150 per person for lunch.
