It was the last day that Roland was in town. We still took the chance to be close to the nature and exercise our muscles. Luk Keng 鹿頸 to Kuk Po 谷埔 is a flat path yet offers great views of the sea, villages, green and part of China. The walk is about 6 to 7 kilometres. It doesn't take long, the walk is easy and the scenery is beautiful.
We had dim sum at Dim Dim Sum in Shatin then proceeded to Fanling Railway Station. Through Exit C we reached the mini bus station. It was already around 1 pm. Not many people were there at time. We were at the beginning of the queue. But mini bus (56K, 6.30 - 19.30) was sparse. It took about 20 minutes to be there.
I said a flat path. It is, but a little exception, steps up and down. And it is the only challenge of the walk. But you will get it through. Once you have walked out the green, sea views awaiting. Cranes! We saw a few, on rocks, around the mangrove of the lonely island. Along the coast are numerous mangroves. Quite abandoned!
Sha Tau Kok 沙頭角 and Shenzhen 深圳. It is well developed. But I prefer the nature.
Villagers leverage the local resources and tourism to enrich their living. You will find oysters scatter the coast. And we saw a few villagers opening oysters.
Eateries dot the path. You don't need to worry that you will be starved or thirsty. And I heard that the food was good. Since we were full, we did not have the chance to prove what we heard.
We spent a few nice hours and enjoyed the walk. Queue for the mini bus got longer and longer. Unfortunately mini-busses were infrequent. We could get on when the third one arrived. Along the return drive, we noticed that more mini-busses were along the way. It's about 4.30 pm. So, be aware of it or call a taxi to get you back to the town.
