Wanderlust Hiking Guide – Aberdeen Reservoir


4th May 2019 – (Hong Kong) The Aberdeen Circular walk starts from the entrance of Aberdeen Country Park. The entire path is shaded by trees and it is very easy to walk. Just follow the signs to reach both upper and lower reservoirs. Both offer different perspective views of the reservoir. This trail suits hikers who want to enjoy nature during a gloomy day but do not want something too difficult.

The Aberdeen Reservoirs were built to supply water to the West side of Hong Kong Island together with Pok Fu Lam Reservoir. The reservoirs were officially opened in 1931 and they were the last reservoirs built on Hong Kong Island.
