SGW is grateful to our friend and contributor, David Muir, for his photos and report on his recent walk from the Ngong Ping plateau, down to Shek Pik reservoir, and from there to Shui Hau Wan.
Like many of us, David has not been able to get out and do any serious hiking for quite some time so it was sensible of him to do a route that he was familiar with. He first told us about this route in July, 2021 and you can read about it here. On this occasion he extended the route to the village of Shui Hau Wan.
Getting to the start of the walk, Ngong Ping, involves taking a bus from either Mui Wo, the No. 2 or the No. 23 from Tung Chung.
Photos of the Route
I have done this route on several occasions in my hiking, camping, and rock climbing days but that was back in the early 90s. I hope to be able to do it in the company of my family very soon.
In general, the footpath is good and the angle is not too severe. However, a good pair of shoes is a must and at least one trekking pole would be useful.
Getting home from Shui Hau Wan is a simple matter of taking the Lantau bus to either Tung Chung or Mui Wo.
David is planning more walks in the coming weeks and we look forward to receiving the details and photos.
