Kau Ling Stream (狗嶺飛流)


Last Visit: 30 Sept 2000


Trip Description

Kau Ling Stream is a rather remote stream. There is no public transport that comes close to its entrance. It embraces two sizable and exposed waterfalls. However they only exhibit their beauty after rainful. This stream does not collect much water from nearby valleies.

Location 1: Altitude 100M

This is the entrance of this stream on Lantau trail. One can get over the fence and stay on the right side to scale up this short water curtain.

Location 2: Altitude 110M

This is the main waterfall of this stream.

Location 3: Altitude 115M

It is the heel of the main waterfall which is approximately 30m in height. It looks like an invincible giant when looking up the waterfall here. To conquer it, you can take the steep path on your left. This path is the most challenging section of this journey. It is steep and narrow. At certain point you have to creep on the edge of a cliff!

Location 4: Altitude 145M

Here is the top of the main waterfall. The far-view is the South China Sea. When you look down, you can see water rolling down the vertical waterfall.

Location 5: Altitude 155M

Here you reach a junction, take the left please.

Location 6: Altitude 185M

Description : This is another short cascade.

Location 7: Altitude 250M

Here you should take a right turn to visit a gorge, called Dog Tail Gorge (狗尾峽). The stream eventually gets smaller and smaller. Finally you will find yourself end up in bushy hillside.

Location 8: Altitude 320M

After struggling in bush for some time, you can find a small footpath bringing you back to the main trail.
