Nestled on the coast of Sam A Tsuen in northeast New Territories, Ngau Shi Wu directly translates to 'cow turd lake'. But thankfully, the name of this place is the only thing that's unpleasant. On your way to the lake, there's also an abandoned village of the same name to explore. Rumour has it though, that the village is haunted, that's why its people abandoned it. Whether that's true or not, we can't confirm, but it is definitely a fascinating area to explore.
How to get there: Take the 20R minibus from Tai Po Market Station and get off at the terminal Wu Kau Tang. From there, you can choose a number of paths to hike to Ngau Shi Wu, so be sure to do your research and choose a trail that best suits your abilities.
