3.5 km (2.5 hours)

8/10. Some waterfalls cannot be bypassed. Elevation gain is 206m

Cel phone coverage: Everywhere

Water needs: 1 liter. 80% shaded

Appreciation: 10/10. Lots of very 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) which is just 10 meters away from the stream

Cross the road, go past the roundabout and the stream will be there on your right

5 minutes into the stream...

About 1.9km from the MTR station, and 45 minutes into your hike,
you'll go over the bridge at Lin Yuen Terrace Falls

I climbed these falls on the right

Climbed these on the right as well

Little Hawaii trail's bridge. About 1.5 hours into your hike,
depending of course on the number of scenic breaks you took...

You will get to this major fork on the stream. Head to the left.

This is the exit point to the stream. You will see the big metal post on your left.

The path is just a few meters away from the stream. Head right. You will be about a 10 minutes walk away from Clear Water Bay Road, and the bus stop

Clear Water Bay Road. Head left to the bus stops
