What you'll do
Having gathered together at Tai Wo MTR, we will travel out together to the mountain region where our adventure awaits us. Nestled within dense jungle on the breathtaking slopes of Tai Mo Shan mountain, lie the Ng Tung Chai Waterfalls. A series of cascades spread over several kilometres, each waterfall is more dramatic than the last. Culminating in the spectacular 'Main Falls', Hong Kong's highest. The trail is of intermediate level. The summer months more testing due to the hot and humid climate, so make sure to bring plenty of fluids and that you're up for the potential challenge. But don't worry! Summertime is also the most rewarding as the cool freshwater pools are that much more refreshing and we have a few options along the way with our route, so can shorten or lengthen the distance if needed.
Embark on an adventure with Rory and his colleague Tristan, both of whom are highly experienced guides having taken tours all over the countryside of Hong Kong for many years. Born and raised in Hong Kong, before spending his teenage years between HK and Scotland; Rory was never a stranger to the intrepid side of life! Whether it be cycling solo across Africa & Vietnam, sailing to the Artic, trekking in the Himalayas, summiting peaks in the Scottish Highlands or hunting for secret waterfalls in the wilds of Hong Kong, he is always keen to utilise any opportunity to explore. As experienced travellers, we really enjoy meeting visitors and sharing with them a different side to Hong Kong that many would not think exists.

Climb past rural villages and temples into another world, a steep sided world full of animals and fauna. Hidden within the dense vegetation you can uncover some truly stunning places. The city never felt so far away.
