Trip Description

ManCheungPo has two main sources, the right one is ManCheung 9 bends. The upper part of the Mancheung 9 Bends runs through an abandon farm, the water is very clean. The 9 bends is usually considered as a separate stream from ManCheungPo because normally people won't visit both ManCheungPo and the 9 bends in a same day. If you do, it would be too hurry to enjoy the great beauty of the streams. Moreover, the atmosphere of the 9 bends is somewhat different from that of ManCheungPo main stream.


This picture is an overview of the convoluting ManCheung 9 bends.
