KMB Station 264M

After an approximate 20 mins ride from KMB 264M, you need to alight after passing the Tai Lam Tunnel. Make your way down to the staircase, pass under the fly-over and get to this location.

The Mountaineers!

A few seconds of concrete pavement and you will enter the muddy part of the trail. 

A perfect scenery...Mountaineers and vivid Vegetation of the trail.
This is bout 30-40 mins of cruising thru the  muddy trail.

Back to concrete pavement once again.

Make your way to the left and you will begin your journey through stones and water. 

Starting Area of Lotus Stream.
Get thru the trees and you will instantly see the stream and hike all the way up stream.

The White Lotus Pool
(Take a dip if you must!)

Red Lotus Cliff

Rainbow Fall
15 meters in height and it is rather easy and safe to pass around and get to the top of the waterfall.

Lotus Terrace Fall
Quite deep so you can really jump into it... just be sure to calculate your drop zone.

Hidden Valley Of Fairy Lotus
A fascinating but rather shallow waterfall area. There a muddy path along the side of this waterfall and you will need to hike uphill to see the last waterfall on top.

Curl Dragon Fall
The last waterfall on this trail and your adventure is almost over, you need to negotiate thru the slippery passage and hike uphill on either Red and Blue Trail Mark. We choose to hike and finish our adventure on the RED markings. When you meet the concrete trail on sure to turn to the right and head towards Sham Tseng. 

The Successful Finishers!
