So when another friend decided to go on his first hike in Hong Kong, I picked this trail to take him on -- only this time around, the route I went for would take us from Shek Pik Reservoir to Shui Hau (followed by a walk along the road to Tong Fuk where The Gallery dishes out what I consider to be the best pizzas in the Big Lychee!):-
A Lantau Trail marker on the road
by the dam of Shek Pik Reservoir
Bamboo trees line one side of the path
early on during the hike
At various points in the trail, views get offered up
of the coastal areas, and waters and islands off it
At one stage, we also passed by land where
there looked to have recently been a fire
Not much camouflage for a green grasshopper
on brown earth!
Another grasshopper finds better camouflage
among the green leaves and brown branches
This reclining rock gets me thinking of
Easter Island figures and baboon faces!
Near Shui Hau, we were greeted by the sight of
kite sailors galore looking like they were having great fun! :)
Beautiful hiking trail! Love your grasshoppers too, they're much bigger than ours in Canada.
Hi fredamans --
It really is a nice scenic hiking trail. Interesting to hear that the grasshoppers in Hong Kong are bigger than those in Canada! :)
