Tai Po Kau Forest Walk is located inside the Tai Po Kau Nature Reserve, a popular destination for nature lovers. It features different colour-coded trails which allow you to control the duration of your hike, including red, blue, brown and yellow. The red trail is the shortest and easiest path (3km/45 minutes), while the yellow is the longest and most difficult one (10km/3.5 hours). This nature reserve is also home to various wildlife, so if you’re lucky, you might be able to see some resident owls or even fireflies during breeding season from May to August. Another benefit is that Tai Po Kau has a dense forest canopy which provides plenty of shade for the entire duration of the hike.
