|WOW factors of Kam Shan Country Park…|
|Waterworks structures heritage|
|Big contrast between urban area and nature|
Travelers can go there by bus (take KMB bus route 72 or 81, alight at Shek Lei Pui Reservoir Stop) to TIY (tour it yourselves).
If travelers want to experience the five wow factors of Kam Shan Country Park easily, travelers can take Frank’s New Territories private tour to visit Kam Shan Country Park, do more and see more.
The first and the biggest wow factor of Kam Shan Country Park is the cute monkeys, which have “conquered” the country park.
A lot of locals just remember the country park’s nickname, “Monkey Hill”!
There are about 1800 monkeys waiting for the travelers.
They look like a team of comedians.
They perform a live reality show by cleaning each other’s hair, feeding babies, asking travelers for food etc.
Please don’t tip the monkey comedians by food, which is illegal.
Waterworks structures heritage
Apart from monkeys, the old and huge waterworks structures heritage is another wow factor of Kam Shan Country Park.
The large Kam Shan Country Park occupies 339 hectares.
Mostly the country park is the water catchment areas for the nearby four reservoirs.
After entering the country park from Kam Shan Road, it is easy to see the four great declared monuments of Kowloon Reservoir, Main Dam, Main Dam Valve House, Spillway Dam and Spillway Dam Recorder House.
These man-made waterworks structures have blended into the surrounding natural scenery harmoniously.
Kam Shan Country Park is the epitome of Hong Kong’s rich bio-diversity.
Of course the largest group of mammals in the Kam Shan Country Park is monkeys.
The fruits and young leaves of hundreds of plants provide food for the monkeys.
According to the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department, the common native species in Kam Shan Country Park are Melastoma species, Rose Myrtle, Acronychia, Hong Kong Gordonia, Fragrant Litsea, Red Machilus, Pop-gun Seed and Ivy Tree, and the rather special Ram-rod Bamboo.
Thus it is no need to feed the monkeys.
Besides the common friends, Black Kites and Squirrels, monkeys can find the Wild Boars as the new friends.
Now it is common to see the Wild Boar families finding food in the country park.
Big contrast between urban area and nature
Actually Kam Shan Country Park is very close to the urban area.
On the way to its entrance, travelers see a stunning cityscape of Kowloon Peninsula on Tai Po Road from the car.
Just a few minutes later, travelers are surrounded by the cute monkeys, great reservoirs and pretty natural landscape inside the country park.
This big contrast between urban cityscape and natural landscape wows a lot of travelers.
After getting deeply into the country park, travelers can still see the great view.
On the Main Dam of Kowloon Reservoir, travelers can see the Stonecutters Bridge and Kwai Tsing Container Terminal.
Travelers also see the Ma On Shan (Saddle Hill) in the New Territories.
At the top of the hill, travelers can see the tallest skyscraper of Hong Kong, ICC.
A photo for the cute monkeys with the tallest ICC building as the backdrop can wow the travelers and their friends.
