It is sweltering in Hong Kong’s summer. With temperature above 33 degrees and humidity above 80%, people easily get dehydrated. TV news often has that hikers suffered from heatstroke and were taken to hospital by helicopter.

Maclehose Trail is not a good option during this time of the year, as most of the trails are not covered by trees and hikers get direct exposure to the sun.

Lying north of Tai Mei Tuk in the Plover Cove Country Park, The Bride’s Pool Nature Trail is a nice route covered in shade that introduces local wildlife and flora.

At the top of the trail, hikers can swim in the Bride’s Pool while listening to the ghost story that happened here. Unlike Ng Tung Chai Waterfall that requires intensive climbing up to a few hundreds meters, Bride’s Pool Waterfall is easy to reach and suitable for family leisure. It is one of the most popular places to visit in summer in Hong Kong.

How to Get There:

Tai Po Market Station MTR Station -> Bus 75K or 20C -> Tai Mei Tuk -> taxi to Bride’s Pool

or

Tai Po Market Station MTR Station -> Bus 275R (Sunday & Public holiday) -> Bride’s Pool

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.
