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.

Description : 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

Description : This is the main waterfall of this stream.
Location 3
Altitude : 115M

Description : 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

Location 6
