Tai Po Kau Nature Walk
New Territories, Hong Kong
Our guided nature walk in Tai Po Kau shows of the most mature and varied forest in Hong Kong. This 460-hectare site was declared a nature reserve in 1977 and is rich in flora and fauna. It contains over 100 different species of trees. In addition over 160 species of birds, 102 species of butterflies and 50 species of dragonflies have been recorded.
This half-day walking tour is an introduction to the common and most easily identifiable plants, birds, butterflies and dragonflies to be found in Hong Kong’s forests. We begin by walking up the access road into the forest proper and then we will follow one of the shorter, colour-coded trails through the reserve. We also take in the excellent Outdoor Study Centre which has a specially planted butterfly garden and small freshwater ponds that, in season, attract frogs and a variety of dragonflies.
