Tsing Tam Stream(清潭石澗)


Last Visit: 6 Oct 2000

NT West

Trip Description

Tsing Tam stream flows from the west of Tsuen Kam Au to Tsing Tam Upper Reservoir. It is a rather wide stream, however you cannot find grand view along the stream. There are no big waterfalls and cliffs. On the other hand, you will meet many relatively short and convoluting waterfalls. There are many small water pools, but they are not good for swimming. All those create a sense of placid for visitors. There are red ribbons along the stream to guide you through the journey.

Location 1: Altitude 105M

The upper pictures is the Upper Tsing Tam Reservoir. On one end of the dam is the entrance of the Tsing Tam stream.

Location 2: Altitude 120M

There are many short falls like this along the stream.

Location 3: Altitude 155M

There is a footpath running on the top of the slanting rock.

Location 4: Altitude 190M

Here you will meet the tallest waterfalls in this stream. It is about 7M high. The associated water pool is in dark green colour. I guess the pool is of several meters deep. This guy is sitting on th top of this waterfall.

Location 5: Altitude 205M

Lonely water pillars hide inside lush vegetation.

Location 6: Altitude 215M

This is a very interesting rocks. It looks as if it was shaped by a giant sharp blade.

Location 7: Altitude 290M

Here is another mid-sized waterfall. From this point onwards, you will find the stream getting narrower. Just follow the red ribbon you will reach the main hiking trail pretty soon.
