Lau Shui Heung Reservoir is also called the mirror of the sky. The surrounding trees and the sky are reflected in the water, so beautifully.

The beauty of this mirror of the sky , deserves to be called Hong Kong Little Guilin, with beautiful mountains and clear waters.

Go straight up the stairs next to the reservoir to return to the main road.

When you come here, you can see the two entrances of the Lau Shui Heung Country Trail. We choose to enter from the entrance directly in front (not the entrance to the mountain) to e njoy the red leaves.

After entering the country trail, you can see a row of pine trees in the distance, officially the destination we are going to.

The barbecue site next to the country trail is temporarily closed due to the epidemic. If you grill here, it must feel very special.

Flowing Water Bridge , this name is quite poetic.

The front row is planted with Melaleuca, and the back row is pine.

Although it is not the best time to enjoy the red leaves, many people still come to take picture.

After enjoying the red leaves, return to the minibus station on the same route.

The light at this time better shows the mirror of the sky.

Back at the entrance of the country trail, you can climb from this entrance to the "Hok Tau Reservoir". But this section is difficult and it is best to walk with your partner.

The first stage is almost all stone steps, which is quite difficult.

There is also a loess road as shown in the picture.

It takes about 30 minutes to reach the highest point of the mountain from the starting point of the country trail.

The road downhill is steep, please pay attention to safety.

Halfway up the mountain, you can see a mirror in the mountains, that is the "Hok Tau Reservoir".

When we saw this sign, we were very close to the "Hok Tau Reservoir".
