Chuen Lung Family Walk
Situated on a mountain in Tsuen Wan, Chuen Lung is an ancient Hakka village, as well as a resting place for hikers to enjoy Dim Sum. Chuen Lung Family Walk is suitable for families to have a barbecue and go on a hike as it is located inside a barbecue site near the entrance of the village. The entrance arch stands alongside Brisbane Box, a special tree species which blossoms from May to July and fruits semiglobose capsules from August to September. Along the trail, there are also Shiny-leaved Prickly Ash, which has pricks on the main vein of both sides of its leaves, Divaricate Strophanthus, which bears poisonous fruits that resemble goat horns, and Sandpaper Vine, which was used by villagers to clean cooking utensils. In the vicinity is a viewing point overlooking Tsuen Wan, with views of Tsing Yi and Lantau Island in the distance. The trip finishes as the trail traverses a group of bamboo nearby. With a span of half a kilometre only, it can be easily finished even by young and elderly family members. In summer, you may also catch sight of the star of Chuen Lung – Yellow Coster, a rare species in Hong Kong. The plant its larvae feed on, Ramie, can also be found by the sides of the stream.
