  • 5 years old son and Hong Kong trip while many people prefer this information, such as Disneyland or aquarium. Then I forgot to read the information about the Mountain Park here seems to be better to go on a hunch, I heard. So I went to. This is currently done in a bunch of wild animals where you live. In short, the animals in the village of human intrusion? Or wait, I think that the visit seemed to be you. I never went to Bali, but also having a place like this you are in Bali. Hong Kong's precious Mountain Park is a deserted mountain person, it's also going to do and Yes attractive. Transportation is used, and when the über über article "monkey hill," writes here know the word. Drop off at the bus stop über articles our family is no laughing matter. Bus stop benches sat his monkey people seemed stuck to the shed I am a liver was eating the fruit. I forgot the Mountain Park was never to gather information about the monkeys should remember to say a long look and started to take the trail to the top of the family. Kowloon Reservoir walk toward coming out, even on the side of the monkeys often were playing a lazy look. The most important thing is that the monkeys would not attack heard from food, and so did not take. The degree of water had the visor in the bag. 1-2 for a couple of hours walking the Park close to the mountains and forgot his head or something. I have a lot of cross-day monkeys weren't haunted by the day. What if you look at the foreign guest to go on blocking the way monkeys but that I should worry and I was not that much. Other than that, all the other tourists gathered to take a break from the sperm out of nowhere a herd of monkeys is sad and gets sadder gold of gold. Perhaps I was hoping for a snack, but not give food to a monkey with a big fine. All these people did not give a snack from the bottom of the pool within a single feed monkeys. Anyway, remember that a child had been a lifetime unforgettable Earl. Even if only to Disneyland! When you return to the sidewalk at a bus stop in the direction of the Mongkok boarded the double-decker bus from. Be sure to go.

  • Spent ~2h on a gentle-minimally strenuous (some steep stairs) walk. There are enough different walking trails in the park and also in a neighbouring park across Tai Po Rd to occupy you for longer. Wen...  more »
  • Jinshan Country Park has a beautiful pond view, and the British Hong Kong government has introduced 獮 monkeys to eat poisonous fruit in order to avoid polluting the water, so there's a place in Hong Kong where the most monkeys are not too many people feeding them, so that they are not afraid of human beings or even the human thing, so do not expose the plastic bag or too close to the monkey, Lest you injure yourself or make a monkey hurt.

  • Nice country park which is very close to urban area. Actually, it is only 5 min drive to Sham Shui Po.
  • Good landscape next to highway with convenient bus routing. However, there is too much monkey to observe people food.
  • 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.
