Shing Mun Reservoir Walk
Shing Mun Reservoir Walk is a loop trail that begins at Pineapple Dam. The trip starts from the Visitor Centre, which tells the story of Shing Mun Country Park, and continues to the Butterfly Garden. Planted with nectar species such as Lantana and Retuse-leaved Crotalaria, the Garden attracts various types of butterflies in all seasons, making it an ideal spot for butterfly photography.
Continuing along the trail, admire Waterside Paperbarks that showcases a spectacular sight when flooded in the wet season. In dry season, when the buttress roots expose, the special patterns on the root surface gives an artistic picture.
After half of the Reservoir Walk, another angle of Shing Mun Reservoir could be seen. Overlooking Kawi Chung, Tsing Yi, Tsuen Wan, and even Lantau from the Leisure Deck, or enjoying the scenic beauty of Shing Mun Reservoir with Tai Mo Shan as background at Viewing Point.
There are other highlights near the Reservoir Walk not to be missed – the main dam, the valve house, and the bellmouth overflow, etc. Spend another half hour to visit the War Relics Trail for a lesson on history before ending the hike.
