Appreciation: 8/10 is you love waterfalls.Some nice views but for the views, it doesn't compare to Dragon's Back.Transportation:Take Bus #6 at Exchange Square (Central). Get down at Wong Nai Chung Reservoir Park (don't forget to swipe you Octopus again to get a discount). Return at via NWFB route 14 on Tai Tam road, to Sai Wan Ho MTR station.
Why it's worth it: Waterfall. Soak in the water on a warm day.
|At the top of the stairs, head left. You will see part of the reservoir's structure in the distance.|
|Cross the street and walk behind the sign announcing the entrance to the private estate.|
|Don't walk on the private road, walk along the path right next to the reservoir. It's not very wide. You can see a set of stairs in the distance. Don't take the stairs, keep going straight.|
|Remember, don't take the stairs, keep going straight.|
|You will follow the rainwater drain for a big portion of the first 1/6 of the way. Some vista but nothing much.|
|Maybe 45 minutes to an hour in, you'll have a point with a nice view of Repulse Bay with its pristine yellow beach.|
|Keep following the path until you reach an intersection. Go right and down |
(Follow "Tai Tam Tuk via Tze Kong Bridge").
|Keep going on the same path. You'll have some nice vistas and you will reach another intersection. Turn left to follow Tai Tam Tuk Reservoir. You will follow the Intermediate Tai Tam reservoir for a while until you get to the dam.|
|At the dam, you get take a breather and go snap a few pictures on the dam. But the path itself if past the dam and then to you left.|
|A few minutes later, there's a patch to the left and going down. Don't take it. Just keep going straight.|
|You'll get to the second dam. There are picnic tables and BBQ pit which are nice to stop at and enjoy a short break for lunch. There's a gazebo as well, in case its raining. When you are done, go over the dam's bridge.|
|Yep, it's a bit tricky and can be slippery, just be careful and make sure you have good shoes. No flip-flops!|
|That's what's waiting for you at the end. Well worth it. Water is nice and refreshing.|
