Luk Wu Country Trail Information

 


Luk Wu Country Trail in East Sai Kung Country Park is a route for fit and experienced hikers. This scenic route begins with a flight of steps on Sai Kung Sai Wan Road. Climbing up, it offers the grand panoramic vistas of High Island Reservoir. Follows a meandering path, views of Tai Mun Shan, Sharp Peak, Tung Wan Shan and the sweeping waters of Tai Long Wan feast your eyes.

The trail scissors through a bamboo stand where you will hear streams gurgle. Soon, the translucent midstream waterway of Kap Man Hang appears, the upstream is the Sheung Luk Stream while the downstream is the Four Pools. Passing thickets of trees and several stone walls, they are ruins of the old Luk Wu Village, a hamlet that vanished some 40 years ago.

Leaving Luk Wu, at the top of a flight of stone steps, exhilarating open vistas to the right are Chek Keng Hau, Sham Wan Tsai, Wan Tsai Peninsula and Tap Mun. At Luk Wu Plateau, a tableland nestled between Pai Ngak Shan and Tai Cham Koi, one can rest at the campsite.

From the plateau, the downhill trail runs parallel to a brook. Up ahead, the trail crosses a catchwater and joins the Pak Tam Country Trail which travels down to Yee Ting at Pak Tam Road.
