It is not uncommon to think of trails near the water during summer. Along Luk Wu Country Trail, hiking enthusiasts can enjoy extensive views of High Island Reservoir on the south and Tai Long Wan on the east. Also, they can have the chance to walk past Sheung Luk Stream, which is hailed as one of the nine famous streams locally and offers their eyes a cool break.  Setting off from Sai Wan Road in Sai Kung, visitors are welcomed by High Island Reservoir, which boasts the greatest capacity among all reservoirs in Hong Kong.  The reservoir kept the name of a fishing village that was affected and further relocated due to the reservoir construction projects. In February, Chinese New Year Flowers greet hikers along the route, which leads to the picturesque Sheung Luk Stream through the thick woods. Along the path, there are countless stone walls that were once part of Luk Wu Village.  Due to its remote location, the place displays tranquility and quite a lot of monks and votaries clean their minds there though most of the religious sites are no longer operating now.   There are a few ascents which require certain physical strength but hikers will get rewarded by scenes of Chek Keng Hau, Sham Wan Tsai, Wan Tsai Peninsula and Tap Mun.  Visitors will also find a unique sign marking “one and only” and depicting a deer’s head, which serves as a photo-taking spot.
