新界東北群島考察

真慚愧,雖然曾修讀地理,但早已把所有忘記得一乾二淨。感謝好友邀請,今天能跟多位專業人士同行,除了收穫甚豐,還讓我重拾戶外考察的機會,非常感激。行完萬里路,決定要惡補,認真讀回萬卷書,為今天的旅程,為健忘的自己寫下筆記。 Continue reading

烏蛟騰>苗三古道>(三椏村>往灣 – 乘艇)>往灣西頂>(往灣>東灣>三椏村 – 乘艇)>犁三古道>烏蛟騰

天晴 / 26-34度 / 濕度58-87%

交通:港鐵大埔墟站乘20R小巴,總站「烏蛟騰」下車 / 回程乘20R小巴至港鐵大埔墟站 (到往灣及東灣,需自行租艇)
感想:行經「苗三」及「犁三」兩條古道,山路石路居多,但沒太多上下坡,景觀不俗,路程雖略長但易走。縱然已走過很多次,但依舊喜歡。往灣西頂雖不高,但看到印洲塘全景,讓人讚嘆不已。東灣水清沙幼,像去了東南亞的海灘般。每次到新界東北,站在不同地方看印洲塘,總是令我無比開心和感恩。
需時|長度:約五小時 / 11.53km
*注意:上落往灣西頂需要略為找路,建議由熟路人士帶領,新手及夏天不宜。請做足功課,預先下載路線,帶備地圖或開啟行山App跟著走。請穿著合適,攜帶足夠裝備如手套、行山杖、傘,以及食物和水。

Wu Kau Tang>Kau Kam Tso>Miu Sam Ancient Trail>(Sam A Wan>Wong Wan – Boat trip)>Wong Wan Sai Teng>(Wong Wan>Tung Wan>Sam A Wan – boat trip)>Lai Sam Ancient Trip>Wu Kau Tang

Transport: Take minibus no. 20R (near MTR Tai Po Market Station),  get off at the terminal  – Wu Kau Tang / Return by taking the same minibus (Need to rent a boat to Wong Wan and Tung Wan)

Feeling: Though it is a pretty long hike with no retreat point accessible by vehicle, it is easy to walk with mainly gentle footpaths and will pass two ancient trails (Lai Sam and Miu Sam Ancient Trail). Wong Wan Sai Teng is not high, but the panoramic view of Double Haven at the hilltop is impeccable! The crystal clear water and white powdery sand of Tung Wan, makes you feel like you were in South East Asia beach. Hiking in Northeast New Territories is my all time favorite!

Distance and Average Hiking Time: 11.7km, around five hours.

** Points to note:  Have to find the path to Wong Wan Sai Teng, better accompanied by experienced hikers and with the help of map or hiking app. Not suitable for inexperienced hikers and better to go in Autumn. Please wear appropriate gears, bring along the hiking stick, gloves, umbrella and stock up before you go.

交通:港鐵大埔墟站乘巴士75K或20C小巴至「大美督」 / 回程於新娘潭乘275R (只在星期日及公眾假期提供服務) 至港鐵大埔墟站
感想:今天走的自然教育徑,既有樹蔭,路況亦好,還有瀑布流水,確實不錯。但此路線需上走360米,夏天行走時需要一定體力。
需時:約三個半小時 / 7.18km

Tai Mei Tuk>Ting Kok Road>Pat Sin Leng Nature Trail>Wilson Trail Section 10>Wang Chung Stream>Bride’s Pool

Feeling: Enjoy walking the well-managed Nature Trail, especially with shades, stream and waterfall nearby. Just need to note that you have to ascend up to 360 meters which is a bit demanding to go in Summer time.

Distance and Average Hiking Time: 7.18km, around three and a half hours

三門仔>鹽田仔>水茫田>馬屎洲自然教育徑>馬腰>114山頭>牛寮下>(水茫田>三門仔碼頭 – 乘艇)

交通:在港鐵大埔墟站乘74K巴士或20K小巴,總站「三門仔」下車 / 回程乘相同巴士或小巴離開
感想:有山有海、風景美,潮退時可以通過連島沙洲至馬屎洲地質公園,沿海邊的教育徑走,可以欣賞不同種類的岩石。
需時:約三個半小時 / 5.51km
**注意:出發前請查閱大埔滘潮汐預報。上走114山頭的路徑清晰不難走,且有非常好的景觀。下山返回水茫田則要找路,不時穿越密林,並有甚多蜘蛛網及塌樹。

Sam Mun Tsai>Yim Tin Tsai>Shui Mong Tin>Ma Shi Chau Nature Trail>Ma Yiu>Hilltop 114>Ngau Liu Ha>(Shui Mong Tin>Sam Mun Tsai Pier – boat trip)

Transport:  Take bus no. 74K or minibus no. 20K (near MTR Tai Po Market Station), get off at Sam Mun Tsai / Return by taking the same bus or minibus.

Feeling: It is not a long hike but with wonderful scenery. If the tidal level is low, you can cross the tombolo to Ma Shi Chau Geo Park. It would be great to take a stroll along the island and see the interesting geological features.

Distance and Average Hiking Time: 5.51km, three and a half hours

** Point to note: Please check the Tai Po Kau predicted tidal levels at Hong Kong Observatory’s website before you set off. The path to the hill top is clear but need to find way back to Shui Mong Tin and have to walk through a bit dense vegetation with lots of spider webs and fallen trees.

感想:這條路線略為長途,除了由城門水塘起步,要走長長的一段石級外,其餘皆是我喜愛的山路,走得舒服。很喜歡遊走川龍、大帽山一帶,遇著好天氣,風景確是好得沒話說。
需時 / 距離:約五個半小時 / 9.92km
**注意:此路線略為長途及需要上攀600米,要相當體力,新手不宜。由禾秧山往妙高台沒有任何指示牌且有甚多分岔路,建議帶備地圖,由熟路人士帶領或預先下載路線圖,開啟App跟著走。請穿著合適,攜帶足夠裝備如手套、行山杖,以及食物和水。

Transport:  Walk from MTR Tsuen Wan Station Exit B1 to Shiu Wo Street and take minibus no. 82 to Shing Mun Reservoir / Return by taking bus no. 51 or minibus no. 80 at Chuen Lung to Tsuen Wan.

Feeling: A bit long and physically demanding hike, except the long long staircases from the start at Shing Mun Reservoir, the rest are my favorite hillside footpaths. Really enjoy hiking and the superb views at Tai Mo Shan Country Park.

Distance and Average Hiking Time: around five and a half hours / 9.92km

** Points to note: This is a physically demanding trail, have to climb up to 600M to Wo Yang Shan, not suitable for less experienced hikers. No trail signage and many divide paths from Wo Yang Shan to Tai Mo Shan Fire Lookout, easy to get lost, better accompanied by experienced hikers or with the help of hiking app or map. Please wear appropriate gears, bring along the hiking stick, gloves and stock up before you go.

交通:MTR荃灣駅の出口B1を出て兆和街にてミニバス82番に乗って城門水塘まで。帰りは川龍でバス 51番またはミニバス80番で。

天晴 / 11-21度 / 濕度 40-83%

交通:港鐵屯門站A出口,經杯渡路,在何福堂書院起步,往井頭上村北及麥理浩徑10段走  / 回程於福亨村往藍地乘輕鐵、小巴或巴士離開
感想:這條路線可以一次過遊覽美麗的藍地及洪水坑兩個灌溉水塘,確是不錯。喜歡行走虎峽谷山路往藍地水塘,行者池絕對是個小驚喜。
需時:約三個半小時 / 8.61km
**注意:洪水坑灌溉水塘於1963年落成,並沒有設置任何郊遊設施,遊覽時需自行評估風險。大家切勿在水管上行走,免破壞公物及發生意外。

Feeling: It is pretty good that we can visit two beautiful irrigation reservoirs in one go. Experience hikers may consider taking the hillside footpaths instead of the clement paths (Tun Mun Trail) to Lam Tei Irrigation Reservoir.

Distance and Average Hiking Time: 8.61km, around four hours

**Points to note: Hung Shui Hang Irrigation Reservoir was built in 1963 and no recreation facilities available for the public, visiting this reservoir would be at your own risk. Never walk on the pipelines as it could cause damage or accident.
