Introduction

It is an ancient trail connecting Tseng Lan Shue and Yau Yue Wan (area near Po Lam nowadays) in Sai Kung District of Hong Kong. Its current name came in the 1950s, when the surrounding area is named "Little Hawaii" by the tourists. Starting from Po Lam MTR Station, you will pass Tseung Kwan O Village, Little Hawaii Waterfall, and Tai Ngau Wu (a former artificial lake used by Rennie's Mill, which later on turned into a swimming pool). This route is mainly in gentle slope going upwards, with good road condition. In case you start from Tseng Lan Shue, you will find it even less demanding. Length: 4km Duration: 2h Difficulty: easy Transportation: refer to itinerary below

Caution

  • slippery rock surface with mosses near the waterfall
  • mosquitoes in summer
  • there is a sitting-out area near Tai Ngau Wu, but no supply point or exit point in the mid-route
