I've said it before but the Tai Tam Country Park really is may well be my favorite Hong Kong country park. Yes, it doesn't have any peaks to rival those on Lantau and its countryside is not as ruggedly scenic as those of, say, Sai Kung East Country Park or Sai Kung West Country Park. But it makes up for this with its accessibility -- and, really, what one sees on a hike from, say, Wong Nai Chung Gap to the Tai Tam Reservoirs really isn't too shabby at all! ;b
Wong Nai Chung Gap is a trail head for a historical trail
Butterfly spotting was more my thing that particular afternoon
that I went over to Wong Nai Chung Gap, however!
I could have avoided going up those steps but I actually
opted to get some exercise in from doing so! :O
I'm willing to wager that the majority of hikers care
about the environment -- but how many are
willing to do their (little) bit to help it?
View of a pretty full-looking Tai Tam Upper Reservoir and
Tai Tam Byewash Reservoir from a higher elevation
A green view that extends further into the distance to include
Tai Tam Harbour, the Redhill Peninsula, and Dragon's Back
The dam of Tai Tam Intermediate Reservoir thankfully
looks pretty solid, strong and stable!
A historic stone marker is so weatherbeaten that
it's hard to quite make out what it is, and is there for ;S
