We'll take the bus to Tai O and walk along the waterfront on the Lantau Trail until the turn-off up the hill on the water services trail.

After sampling the cooling waters, we can return the same way we came, or go up the hill to join the trails leading past Man Cheung Po,
Lung Tsai Ng Yuen and Ngau Kwo Tin reaching the Tai O Road at the Kwun Yam temple. The hike is not too taxing but there are a few steep bits near the falls. Bring your swimming gear.

Hiking Recommendations

Please always bring plenty of water, sun protection and a snack. Also, in very bad weather or high air pollution, the hike may be cancelled. If in doubt call the hike leader. It if rains, we usually go anyway although we may change the route. 

Note that whatever the actual walking time, with travel and eating a meal afterwards, these hikes usually end up taking most of the day so don't expect to be back home until late afternoon/early evening unless specifically mentioned!!
