Nga Ying West Stream (牙鷹西坑)


Last Visit: 19 Jun 2016


Trip Description

Nga Ying West Stream locates on the west of Nga Ying Shan in Lantau Island. It used to be a very narrow creek but it was widened by a major landslide in year 2008. After so many years, most lose rocks settled. You can still find the traces of landslides nowadays. As you move along, you still have to beware of loose rocks. This stream is seldom visited by hikers. There is NO ribbon nor markings along the route. You really have to figure out how out to navigate by your skills and experience. There is some waterfalls and small pools along the way. Water is clean with some algae.

The lower stream,or the first 20M~30M is infested with overgrown and spider webs. This session is not too enjoyable.
