Sai Kung Waterfall Sheung Luk Stream

Sheung Luk Stream, Sai Kung – Streams & Waterfalls

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 РSai 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

Exit:

  • 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)

    I would sincerely appreciate it if you did not post directions online to this location. Just 5 years ago this was a hidden gem in Hong Kong, and now it is over run on most days. Please remove this post and try to maintain the sanctity of this location.

      I do understand your concern. But it is better to post the direction instead of people getting lost.
