Monkeys in Hong Kong do not live in Water Curtain Cave; most of them are found in Kam Shan, or commonly known as Monkey Hill. Starting at Kowloon Reservoir and Shek Lei Pui Reservoir, Kam Shan Family Walk is an uphill shady path mainly consisting of stairs. It can look back on Kowloon Reservoir and is very popular among morning walkers. It winds back to Golden Hill Road, which is one of the few places in Hong Kong where people can get close to macaques. Macaques, although not aggressive, may get out of control and snatch food from people. It is therefore important to keep an eye on your food and bags, and remember not to feed them or get too close to them.
