MacLehose Trail Stage I-II, Sai Kung

MacLehose Trail is a long trail across most of the New Territories. We hiked the first 2 stages in Sai Kung and started out at Pak Tam Chung. The first couple of hours were on a road along the High Island Reservoir. We later discovered that most people took a taxi instead of walking this part.

The first, and best, of the 3 beaches along the trail.

 

This is some of the most scenic part of Hong Kong.
