Trip Description

This is a very good sight-seeing trip but it can easily take you 7 hours to complete. The route basically brings you across the ridges among the mountains. The route encompasses Plover Cove Reservoir(船灣淡水湖). Prepare sufficient water and food for this trip. There is no shelter on the ridges, the route could be demanding under the burning Sun. Ah, one more thing, bring a torch with you lest it should get dark before you come out.
