High Island Reservoir (萬宜水庫)

You will see a “fort” at the west side of High Island Reservoir (萬宜水庫) on Maclehose Trail Stage 1. Not sure how it functions. Leave a comment if you know.

In 2003, I moved to Hong Kong with a dream of traveling around the world. Later I found out, HK is an amazing "mini world". Other than skyscrapers, a few steps outside the modern city, it has steep hills, winding coastlines, outlying islands, millions of years volcanic rocks, remote beaches, unspoilt fishing villages, secret waterfalls, wild animals and ancient forests. Follow me now to explore the Hong Kong less traveled.


  1. This is not a fort. This is what is referred to as a “glory hole”. It is a type of drainage for dams and the sort that, when the water is too high it has somewhere to drain to. There are lots of these around the world near dams. Some can be spectacular to behold when the water is draining down them as they will appear to be a giant whirlpool.
