Shui Lo Cho Pools (Lantau Island)


Start: MTR to Tung Chung or ferry to Mui Wo. Then bus towards Tai O. Get off near Kwaun Yam Temple - just after the turn off to Big Buddha (Ngong Ping).

End: Ends at Tai O. You can take the bus to Mui Wo for ferry or Tung Chung for MTR.

Description: We'll take the bus to the Kwun Yam temple on Tai O Road (past the turnoff for the Buddha), then walk past Ngau Kwo Tin and Lung Tsai Ng Yuen, turn right at Man Cheung Po to Shui Lo Cho. Need to leave the path at the bridge with the brown painted rails (see photos). After swimming in a choice of pools you finish along the waterfront back to Tai O. The hike is not too taxing but the descent by the waterfall is a steep scramble.

Time: 4 hours plus swimming time
