Every hike at Lung Mun Country Trail starts with "eating", as Yum Cha in the morning in Chuen Lung has been seen as ‘the launching ceremony’ here.  Situated around the mid slope of Tai Mo Shan, this Hakka village was originally populated by villagers of Longchuan County in Guangdong, who migrated south to Tsuen Wan in the early 15th century.  It is said that villagers called ‘Tai Mo Shan’ as such to commemorate a mountain of the same name in Longchuan County.  Leaving the Hakka village for the shady and primitive trail, hikers will pass three streams with cool running water, including Tai Yuen Stream, where there is an abundance of water, soothing hikers under the hot and blazing sun. After a distance of smooth trail, hikers will be welcomed with urban views of Tsuen Wan District, which is surrounded by Kam Shan and Tai Mo Shan, and with the sights of Ting Kau Bridge, which extends to the south west, and two straits that are crossed by Tsing Ma Bridge.  Hikers will arrive at Shing Mun Reservoir after finishing the last bit of downhill road.
