South West Stream is one of the upper stream of the famous Tai Shing Stream. Most hikers will only cover the lower part and the middle part of Tai Shing Stream. Unlike other rivers' upper streams, South West Stream has affluent water flow, clear ribbon markings and is relatively roomy. The stream embrace a lot of mid-size clear water pools for a refreshing dip. Wet mosses are common in this stream. Beginners are not suggested to attempt this stream because it would be quite slippery at times.
We start from the finishing line of Tai Shing middle stream which is marked by this landmark rock called "肥佬麥" (Fat Man Mak).
Here is the official starting point of South West Stream. At this point, you will find this water jet shooting from your left. We can easily overcome this waterfall on its left.
But this bold guy challenged the waterfall on its right. It is wet and vertical.
Wind and Bending river, so lovely and peaceful. Beware of the greens on the rocks.
Climbing up carefully.
This is a long stretch of waterfalls with multiple clear pools. This is really a nice place for taking a break.
Are you trying to climb up vertically? Give it a second thought.
Just before finishing off, you will see a dark waterfall.
Finally, we came to this dam which is the exit of South West Stream. You can leave the stream using the path on the right.
