Brief

Weather forecast looks OK on Sunday 21st June 2015. We will do a 2.5 boot stream trekking / hiking (weather permitting) this Sunday in Wang Chung Stream in the Pat Sin Leng Country Park, Tai Po, New Territories.


We’ll meet at 10.00 a.m. at the Tai Po Market Railway Station near the coffee / snack shop and take bus 275R or share taxi for Brides' Pool . We will start the stream trekking from Chung Mei.
 
The Stream embraces picturesque landscapes,  clear water pools and majestic waterfalls (such as the Dragon Ball Waterfall [龍珠瀑]) and we could swim in a few of the pools. 
 
The stream trekking will last approximately 3-4 hours, reaching an altitude of about 215m where we will leave the stream and join the Wilson Trail Stage 10. We will then go downhill to Bride's Pool Bus Terninal through the Pat Sin Leng Nature Trail. 
 
Please bring swimming gear / google / clothes + sandals to change after the walk / pair of thick gloves  / insect repellant   / non-slip shoes suitable for stream trekking.
