  • Huge natural park on the Mainland. Many different routes, there are pointers to the footpaths. Entrance is free of charge. Everywhere is clean. Monkeys feed is prohibited and it is better not to tease.

  • 這個郊野公園位於香港北部的新界地區,是郊遊好去處,尤其在秋高氣爽的秋天,天氣宜人,又不太熱,十分適合去郊遊,也可以在這個公園試玩澗水,也十分值得推介 
  • 有很多猴子的郊野公園,看到猴子的機會是100%,很多時候是太多會有點可怕. 我每次去那邊都會非常小心, 一定不能拿塑膠袋在手上, 任何形式的膠袋在手上都很有機會吸引到猴子來搶. 一般他們是沒有傷害性的,只要不挑釁他們,觀看時保持距離就可以了. 公園內有步道,有燒烤去, 很適合喜歡大自然的人. 
  • 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.
  • Easy hiking spot, can be finished within two hours even if you take lots of photos . You can see up to four reservoirs with slightly different characteristics. There are quite many monkeys, be sure not to irritate them or feed them (or loads of monkeys Mau chase after you).
  • HUGE park with lots of hiking trails that are very well maintained and lots of monkeys. Staring into their beady little eyes and smiling / showing teeth at them are signs of aggression. FYI
  • so many cutey monkey! however , people need to be careful ! feeding monkey is not allowed without lience
  • Lovely park! Beware the surprise from the monkeys!
