Kap Lung Ancient Trail Information

 


Kap Lung Ancient Trail begins at Hong Kong's highest bus stop bythe Country Park on Route Twisk. This winding path was a major commuting route in the past, along which farmers travelled to and from the Tsuen Wan Market. The first leg of the ancient trail overlaps with Kap Lung Forest Trail, while another section has two parallel stone paths built in different eras with different styles. One of them was built by the Country and Marine Parks Authority within the last decade, the other one was built by local villagers many decades ago the ancient trail.

This route brings you through plantations and hill streams inside Tai Lam Country Park. Several sections are paved with stones. They reflect villagers' ingenuity in using natural materials that were readily available in the wild. Treading this primitive path, you can relive the simple life of old rural communities.

Lined with towering old trees on both sides, attracting abundant of wild animals and forest birds, the ancient trail is a favorable breakaway.
