An ancient village path connecting Pak Tam Au and Pak Tam Chung in the past, Pak Tam Country Trail is an easy route with muddy paths and stone trails through weeds, exuding a sense of ancient elegance.  Beginning at Pak Tam Au with a descent all the way down, the trail is surrounded by mountains.  The first part commands the views of Ngau Yee Shek Shan and Tai Che Leng Tun while the latter part affords the views of Tai Cham Koi and Pai Ngak Shan and occasional glimpses of Kau Sai Chau, where the Jockey Club Public Golf Course is situated, on the south through the valley.  On Kau Sai Chau sits a small island Yim Tin Tsai, where a Hakka village with 300-year history is situated.  The village has a century-old chapel called St. Joseph’s Chapel, whose history is valued by the Catholic villagers, and a school called Tsing Boor School, which has become a mini-museum of Yim Tin Tsai’s culture and the villagers’ life.  The villagers still make Hakka Cha Kwo today.  The trail takes about an hour to complete and ends at Yee Ting Campsite.  It is the perfect place to camp out with family members.
