  • Nice country park which is very close to urban area. Actually, it is only 5 min drive to Sham Shui Po.
  • Follow the nature trail signs and see some monkeys at the entrance right away (if you're lucky). The path going to the reservoir also had some monkeys but not much when I was there. Be aware of the cars driving by and the large amount of mosquitos sometimes roaming the area.
  • Beautiful natural views, easy hiking and jogging trail, great for beginners in hiking and people living in the city. Loads of history on the reservoir and preservation too. Consider monkeys and boars to be extra bonus for your rewarding trip.
  • Nice views and good hike. Must do.
  • Not much nature and not much hiking, just a level asphalt road. But the monkeys are everywhere, and it's not the sort of monkeys you see in Thailand or elsewhere. They're pretty wild and they feel like they own the place. Don't stare, don't make noises. If you're lucky you can watch them jump from trees into the water, this is hilarious. Great experience overall.
