Still, it's not as though I've shied away from hiking in that part of the Big Lychee. After all, Tai Tam Country Park (especially if you include its Quarry Bay Extension) is my favorite of the country parks on Hong Kong Island; what with such as Siu Ma Shan, Mount Butler and the Tai Tam Reservoirs -- all of which I've been known to make a point to pass by or through over the course of a single hike -- being located within its boundaries. Then there's the matter of this part of Hong Kong being a place where interesting critter spottings can be made most times of the year... ;)
When starting a hike on Braemar Hill, one will find
oneself in green space above the city even before
officially stepping into Tai Tam Country Park :)
My countryside map shows a number of trails in the area of
the wireless station near Siu Ma Shan Bridge but I'm still
not that sure that they're actually accessible to the public
So, as I've done before on more than one occasion
when in this area, I made for Mount Butler instead
And, like on a previous occasion, I found the top of Mount Butler
On this hike, I found the water levels of the Tai Tam Reservoirs
to be a good deal lower than I'm used to seeing
Is it just me or does this actually pretty small butterfly
look like it's got bee relatives? ;b
I wonder what kind of butterfly this caterpillar turns into?
Anyone know what kind of bug this is?
