Trip Description

This route is a very enjoyable leisure hike. The path wide and clear in general. The only issue is the starting point is rather confusing because of some undocumented routes for grave sweepers in the village. In the map above, there is a southern mountain ridge that also lead to the Pak Tai To Yan. It is however, the entrance of this southern ridge has apparently been blocked by some village construction. Anyway, the one we took this time was a good one.

The path under 350M is very open. The path above 350M is running inside a forest and yet the path remains very clear all the way through.

Location 1: Altitude 30M

This is the start point. Right next to a bus stop, super convenient. There is a hiking path behind the road sign in the picture. That hiking path should eventually meet the route we went this time.

Location 2: Altitude 415M

The route was too easy, everyone was laughing.

Location 3: Altitude 455M

Trekking inside a placid forest.
This is quite a special mud bridge. Those horizontal rods are actually pipes. When water level is high one side, the pipes can drain the water to the other side. I think the original mud bridge was much thicker, it wore out over time and exposed the pipes.

Location 4: Altitude 500M

We eventually reached Pak Tai To Yan(北大刀刃)which is the highest point of this trip. Pak Tai To Yan is a very popular hiking route, you can take either north or south to go back to down town.
