One can never overemphasise the beauty of the Tai Tam Group of Reservoirs. They are a group of 4 reservoirs, namely, in chronological order of their respective completion from 1888 to 1917, Tai Tam Upper Reservoir, Tai Tam Byewash Reservoir, Tai Tam Intermediate Reservoir and Tai Tam Tuk Reservoir. Built in the hope of tackling population explosion and hygienic problems like plague, they are one of the 6 prewar reservoirs in Hong Kong and have completely retained the superb waterworks design and craftsmanship of that time. Twenty-two of the historic waterworks, including the four masonry arch bridges built in the British style, have been declared monuments. Anyone with special needs intending to admire the beauty need not worry - the entire forest track is flat and there is a accessible toilet at the start point.


Points to note:
1) There are new ramp and crossing place at bus station at Tai Tam Country Park, Tai Tam Road. Watch out for cars when crossing Tai Tam Road.
2) Return at Tai Tam Tuk Reservoir Barbecue Area 4.
