But before my two hiking buddies that day and I began our descent down, we first enjoyed the pavilion's peaceful surroundings and the views to be had from there -- and only then did we go down via a different route from the one we had taken to the upper area of the farm, one that offered up still more interesting sights at this often overlooked gem of a Hong Kong facility and attraction:-
View of Kwun Yam Shan and its surroundings from
the Kadoorie Brothers' Memorial Pavilion
(that's slightly different from the one I shared here! ;b)
A moon gate and path near the pavilion -- with part of
Tai Mo Shan in the background
Tangerines are among the fruits found on trees
at Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden
I'm not sure what species of butterfly this is but
it's a beauty, don't you think?
At Signpost Corner, one can find out how far away
places as diverse as Tahiti, Teheran, Wan Chai
and the North Pole are from Kadoorie Farm :)
They may be called the Great Falls but they were
more trickle than genuine waterfall when we visited!
This photo doesn't do justice to how intimidatingly steep
were the steps beyond the "Please Do Not Enter" sign!
The mind boggles when seeing this sign... ;b
