For the many places whose historical side has been swallowed up by towering skyscrapers, names are all that is left.  One such example is Fu Tei, Tuen Mun, where, according to legend, tigers could be spotted.  The pity of it is that the truth of it will always remain a mystery. A little distance ahead, the sound of rushing water of Fu Tei Hang stream can be heard. Just above Fu Tei Hang along the hill, the level and well-shaded Fu Tei Country Trail lies.  At the end of the stream sits Lam Tei Irrigation Reservoir, which was put into service in 1957.  It is a long and narrow lake.  In autumn, the hills behind the trees turn golden in the breeze, reflected together with the azure sky in the placid waters of the lake.  Its dam is also long and narrow, so when looked back at the dam, the reservoir is like a long river deep into the woods and mountains.  The hike is never complete without paying a visit to the monument erected next to the dam, which was inscribed ‘Lo Fu Hang Dam, Hung Shui Hang, Yuen Long, the New Territories’ and unveiled by the then Governor of Hong Kong Sir Alexander William George Herder Grantham.  This provides proof that the stream was once called ‘Lo Fu Hang’; the question now is, ‘is the legend about tigers being around true?’
