Go with the flow: Canyoning and stream trekking at Ping Nam Stream
Hiking on regular paths is so dry. Get wet and wild at Ping Nam Stream, one of Hong Kong’s most adrenaline-fuelled beauty spots, popular as a place to canyon and stream hike. You can spend time swimming at the stunning Hula Skirt Falls, or choose the six-kilometre hike along the rocky stream bed, which takes around four hours to complete. You’ll want a change of clothes, plenty of drinking water and hiking sandals with excellent grip. Never attempt to enter the stream after a period of heavy rainfall.
How to get there: Take the MTR to Fanling, then ride the 56K minibus until Nam Chung Road. Take a right at Luk Keng Road, then follow the signs for Wilson Trail Stage 10, until you spy a dam. Take the overgrown stairs on the right, rather than continuing to follow the main trail, until you arrive at the stream. Alternatively, arrange a guided canyoning trip via Wild Hong Kong or Klook.
