Nam Chung Country Trail
Situated close to the north eastern border, Nam Chung does not have precipitous cliffs or dangerous streams, but what it does have among the abandoned fishponds and fields is the nostalgic scenery of rural Hong Kong, with natural landscape of mangroves, freshwater marshes, etc. Not only does it offer scenic splendours of mountains and water, it is also home to a wealth of wildlife because of the surrounding mangroves, freshwater marshes and fishponds. In particular, the nearby Sha Tau Kok Hoi has become a paradise for egrets and herons, which can be easily spotted between March and August. The hiking trail passes through Ping Nam Stream, where different species of dragonflies can be found. Beyond Kwai Tau Leng, you can find Tan Chuk Hang and San Uk Tsai Village. The fields, ditches, lotus ponds, orchards, and marshes scattered in Tan Chuk Hang make for wonderful spots to watch butterflies and dragonflies. Wildlife and a small number of villages enjoy a harmonious coexistence on these freshwater wetlands.
