Event description

Description

The north-eastern New Territories are home to some of the most beautiful waterfalls of Hong Kong, and as usual waterfalls come hand in hand with pools. Some big enough to swim in, others are small. Some pools are shallow, others are deep and seemingly bottomless. These pools are home to various species of fish, and other waterlife such as the Hong Kong Newt.

Wang Chung stream

This tour is fairly challenging. Not because of it's length, but because of the terrain. When it comes to river treks, Wang Chung Stream is one of the easier ones, however it is still a river trek, meaning it's boulders all the way. There is no need to get wet, however there are several opportunities to have a swim - one of the best ones being at the very end of the river trek section.

The meeting point for this tour is at Tai Po Market MTR station, from where we catch bus 275R ($10.6 - not included) to Bride's Pool Road, from where we head out to first see the Bride's Pool waterfall and the Mirror Pool waterfall.

Mirror Pool fall

We walk back to Bride's Pool Road, to start the trek up Wang Chung Stream. This stream has numerous waterfalls and pools along the way, including the iconic Dragonball Fall, which is a good 3/4 of an hour in. This is also a good spot and time to have a picnic lunch (bring your own).

Wang Chung Stream - Dragon Ball Fall

The river itself is really made up of waterfalls and ponds, only a few stretches of normal river in between.

Wang Chung Stream

Another half an hour further is the Ice Pool, one of the larger pools, and seemingly bottomless. Even though the water is crystal clear, the bottom of this pool can not be seen. Lots of fish can be seen swimming in the waters here.

Wang Chung Stream - Ice Pool

From that point on, it's another half an hour or so to reach the Pat Sin Leng Nature Trail. The terrain gets progressively less steep, and the ponds increase in size.

Wang Chung Stream

The last part of the tour is a fairly easy half hour hike downhill along the Pat Sin Leng Nature Trail back to Bride's Pool Road, where we can board a bus to take us back to Tai Po Market station.

Bring your own lunch - we'll have a break halfway, but there's nothing available along the trail.

Total duration: about 5 hours, of which 4 hours on trail.
