Lung Mun Country Trail starts at Chuen Lung which lies
within Tai Mo Shan Country Park. It is a tree-lined
route that crosses sylvan ravines to end in Shing
Mun Country Park. Some visitors may choose to have breakfast or
lunch in Chuen LungVillage before setting off.
The trail's starting point is about 2 km from Chuen
The trail is unique
in the way that it negotiates through 3 wood bridges.
The wood crossings ensure the safety of hikers because
Lung Mun country trail crosses several streams along
the way. In rainy season, the sprawling massif of
Tai Mo Shan collects a great amount of water. The
Tai Yuen Stream, in particular, becomes an impassable
torrent on rainy days.
The middle section
of the country trail gives a broad view of Tsuen Wan and Tsing Yi. In the background stands the magnificent
Ting Kau Bridge. Under its feet is the urban sprawl
of Kwai Chung and Tsuen Wan.
Mun, the trail follows a forest path where birds
and butterflies flourish. Before leaving, don't forget
to visit the Shing Mun Country Park Visitor Centre
and Pineapple Dam Nature Trail to get a better understanding
of Shing Mun's geography, history, as well as ecology.
