Trip Description

This is a very good sight-seeing trip but it can easily take you 7 hours to complete. The route basically brings you across the ridges among the mountains. The route encompasses Plover Cove Reservoir(船灣淡水湖). Prepare sufficient water and food for this trip. There is no shelter on the ridges, the route could be demanding under the burning Sun. Ah, one more thing, bring a torch with you lest it should get dark before you come out.

Location 1: Altitude 100M

This is the entrance at Wu Kau Tang(烏蛟騰). You can easily find a footpath behind the stone post.

Location 2: Altitude 180M

After 10 to 15 minutes, you would be on the Wang Leng ridge hiking trial.

This slope is the famous Luk Wu Tung(鹿湖峒). Hikers give it a nick of Falling Dog(跌死狗). As its name suggests, this slope is very steep. Mind your steps.
