Me jumping – well it looks scary and yes it is quite scary.
Sheung Luk Stream behind Tai Long Sai Wan is located in Sai Kung East Country Park. Around a 10 minutes’ walk from Sai Wan are the Four Pools. The upper pool with a 40 ft high vertical cliff standing on its side is the largest and deepest among the four, where you can jump off from a cliff and take some cool pictures. Well – Jump at your own risk!
If you are not into jumping or taking risk, you may also enjoy swimming, picnic or (high) tea at the pool (My friends sometimes bring a water melon and cool it in the water), especially on a sunny day during the summer time in Hong Kong. Spend an hour there before continuing your walk to Ham Tin Wan where I name it as the best camping site in Hong Kong. Ya – Sai Kung has the best of the best in my eye.
Just a side note – Google map is really helpful on trip planning. Please zoom in and see where the entrance is…The least thing that I want here is people getting lost because of my post :)
How to get there:
- Take the MTR to Choi Hung (green line), get out at Exit C and get the 1A Green Minibus to Sai Kung (40 mins)
- Take Minibus 29R or a taxi from Sai Kung town (outside McDonalds) and alight at the Sai Wan Pavilion terminal (30 mins)
- Follow the signposts and paths directed to Sai Wan (40 mins) where you can find a few stores
- Walk pass the stores and reach a longer beach of Sai Wan where you should see a stone bridge at the end of it. The opening to Sheung Luk stream was hidden in shrubs next the stone bridge BEFORE crossing the bridge
- Walk along the stream for about 15 mins you will then reach the Sheung Luk Stream
- Retrace steps until return to Sai Wan and cross the stone beach
- Follow the MacLehose Trail to Ham Tin Wan (30 mins)
- Take a speedboat back to Sai Kung Town. ($100, 30mins)
