Took the 64K bus, which is a roundtrip from Tai Po Market to Yuen Long, to arrive at the start of the trail. It was a lot of uneven stone stairs at the start, then the direction from Bottom Falls to Main Falls can have some pretty narrow sledges, so take it slow. The way up to Tai Mo Shan is a mix of stairs and a steep dirt path. The dirt path was my favourite spot though. The paved road was nice and the peak of the Tai Mo Shan had quite a number of people on Sunday afternoon. Weather was cloudy at the top, and the sun showed a few times as the clouds cleared. It was a chill hike down since the stone stairs were even, and golden hour was beautiful at the sub peaks of Tai Mo Shan. The hike ended at Tsuen Kam Au, where you take bus 51 down to the Tsuen Wan West MTR.

Great hike - a couple of forked paths with no signs so make sure to have a map on your phone ready to point in the right direction. lots of fun coming up Tai Mo Shan this way via the waterfall path

This is a long and Beautiful trail..Waterfalls were amazing.. the walk down from Tai mo shan connects with maclehose section 8...we were lucky to find a taxi on the way down, otherwise it would have been more tiring but the hike is definitely worth it .

Damp day and very slippy in places. Waterfalls are beautiful

A wonderful tour spent u around 5 hours up and down the hills

The hike is clear, and despite the elevation is relatively easy to reach as the slope isn't too bad. Bring sunscreen as the descent is unshaded. Has nice view on Shenzhen and HK

Great four hour hike from the Rotary Park up Tai Mo Mountain peak via McLehose Trail Section 8 and then down to Ng Tung Chai waterfalls via Ng Tung Chai Trail. Sections of the Ng Tung Chai trail is unpaved and overgrown with shrubs. There are also sections near the waterfalls where it get wet and slippery. An enjoyable hike overall with great views and kids who are too small may it find it long.

Nice water fall

For my grandpa

Good hike, nice waterfalls, went swimming at one of them. not too much uphill

Gorgeous waterfalls but watch out for the slippery rocks! Part of the hike is quite challenging. Lots of shades overall!

Conditions: Great!

Очень красивый маршрут

Great hike with excellent views and set of one of the best waterfalls on the way. Not suitable for faint-hearted persons, as part of the trail is quite treacherous.

A long climb to Hong Kong’s tallest mountain. Some beautiful waterfalls on the way!

Conditions: Over grown, Rocky, Scramble

A wonderful trail that takes you to the summit of Tai Mo Shan. Tai Mo Shan is the highest peak in Hong Kong and makes this trail a High traffic area. Locals are friendly and most speak a little bit of English. I would rate this trail easy and achievable by beginners as long as they set a pace and don't turn back. The views are wonderful and inspirational! This trail will be unforgettable! Enjoy!

One of the very best hikes in Hong Kong. A solid 4 hours and quite a climb, but the trail. the scenery and the views are exceptional.

Varied hike first up through the woodland past the waterfalls, then up open grassland to the top of Tai Mo Shan, and a gentle walk down partly by road and partly by trail. Varied and relatively challenging, with some amazing views in all directions.
