Hong Kong Shing Mun Reservoir Valve Tower
When one first sees the valve tower one thinks back the colonial days and this very well-being located somewhere in Scotland rather than Hong Kong. The site is as well as Memorial Stone of Shing Mun Reservoir was listed as a historical monument in 2009 and its upper and lower dams, steel bridges, valve towers and bellmouth overflows were listed as Grade I historical buildings in 2012. The reservoir is popular with hikers, people getting together for picnics or a fun day of cosplay. It’s the habitat of many species of butterflies including the Grey Butterfly and Monarch Butterfly, and its picturesque scenes of dense vegetation of paper bark trees reflected on the water surfaces are well-loved. It’s everything in a day outing one does not expect from Hong Kong.
The mountain on the left is Tai Mo Shan (大帽山) the highest peak in Hong Kong, with an elevation of 957 m. Tai Mo Shan is also the tallest coastal peak in Southern China and second tallest in China after Mount Lao. It’s located in the centre of the New Territories. The peak itself is fairly accessible as there is a road leading up to it and many photographers go there to shoot sunrise. It’s not unusual that the mountain peak will be in or above the clouds. It’s also one of the few places in Hong Kong one can see frost.
