Little Hawaii Falls dry hike (小夏威夷瀑布)


4 km (1h15)


Cel phone coverage: Everywhere

Water needs: 1 liter. 90% shaded

Appreciation: 8/10. Nice and easy hike with nice waterfalls.

Exercise Area: No

Transportation: Exit 'C', Po Lam MTR station. Return via bus KMB 91 to Diamond Hill MTR station, Green minibus 1 to Choi Hung MTR. Actually, there are tons of buses and minibuses at 2 stops at the end point.

Why it's worth it:


At Po Lam MTR, use exit 'C' which is the one immediately in front of you once you have past the turnstiles.
Then immediately head right on Mau Yip Road

Mau Yip road

After 200m or so, you'll reach the end of Mau Yip road.
Cross the road and turn left onto Po Fung Road.

After another 200m, you will reach this point where you see a tunnel that goes under Po Hong Road. Don't take the tunnel, instead, head right on the path that parallels Po Hong Road.

After about 400m where you will have walk past the Po Tsui Park (on your right), you will reach this other tunnel which goes under Po Lam Road. Take it. You are about 5 minutes away from the beginning of the stream

As you get closer, you will see a waterfall in a distance (top encircled) as you enter the Tseung Kwan O village. You will also see a roundabout (bottom encircled)

About 1.8km into the hike, 25-30 minutes (from MTR exit 'C').
Head left to go see the Lin Yuen Terrace Falls

Lin Yuen Terrace Falls bridge

There's a waterfall on your left but you can't see it unless you go down on the rocks, on the left

And you will see these falls... quite nice

Upstream on the other side of the bridge, just hop on the rocks and about 20m out, you will see...

... these falls. Very very nice!

Once you are done, retrace your steps to the fork and the keep going on Little Hawaii trail (left)

At the next bridge, you can go downstream and on top of the waterfalls. Not has impressive as going up the falls but the only way to get that is to stream trek it.

Keep going. Not major waterfalls afterwards...

Clear Water Bay Road. Head left to the bus stops
