Po Kwu Wan is located near High Island Reservoir in Sai Kung. It is a small bay with a half moon shape concrete embankment used by fishermen in the past for fish farming. The access to this hidden paradise is very secluded as it is not a commonly known trail to hikers in Hong Kong.
You will come across the Sheung Yiu Folk Museum which was originally a Hakka village built in the late 19th century before reaching Po Kwu Wan. The village and its neighbouring lime kiln were gazetted as monuments in 1981. After it was restored, the village was opened as a museum in 1984.
Difficulty : 4.5/10 (This route contains many hidden trails and it is only suitable for experienced hikers)
Duration : 3 hours 30 minutes
Take Bus 94 or 96R to Pak Tam Chung Bus terminus. Walk along Tai Mong Tsai Road towards High Island Reservoir but turn Right when you see a sign and a small Pak Tam bridge that leads you to Pak Tam Chung Nature Trail.
Follow the sign and continue walking until you reach Sheung Yiu Folk Museum. After passing the museum, keep walking for around 10 minutes before you see a staircase that leads to Sheung Yiu Country Trail on the left. Continue to ascend the stairs until you see a trail on the right with a warning sign.
This path is extremely treacherous as there are many trees and plants along the narrow trail and walk for around 15-20 minutes before you see a smaller path on the left that leads to Po Kwu Wan embankment. You can follow the same route back to Pak Tam Chung Bus Terminus.
