Ng Tung Tsai Waterfalls, Lam Tsuen, Tai Po

Ng Tung Tsai

Ng Tung Tsai Waterfall is one of the tallest all-season waterfall range in Hong Kong. Located in Ng Tung Tsai Village of Lam Tsuen, Tai Po, the wateralls in the area remain uncontaminated because of it's remoteness.

Ng Tung Tsai Waterfall is composed of a range of waterfalls. The main fall, situating on top of the hill side, is also the tallest fall. The middle fall and bottom fall follow the main fall along the down stream. Another major fall named the Scatter Fall deviates from the others not far away.

During and after rains, the water current could be very strong. It is spectacular but could also be dangerous for hikers. So, be cautious.

From there, the walk to reach the main waterfall takes about 2 hours.
