Monkey Mountain

Well I have been a little lazy after setting up the blog and took a hiatus from writing for a bit. And so at long last I am writing about Monkey Mountain, eish.

S and I decided to fit in as much sightseeing stuff as we could in the two days off we had together. This is day 2, after a somewhat long day at the harbor the day before. Im still trying to remember why we thought this would a be a good idea so soon after 6 hours on our feet lol.

Getting to Monkey Mountain from Mong Kok

 

We took the MTR from Yau Ma Tai to Cheung Sha Wan and then bus 72. You will need to take the Tseun Wan line (red line).

We got of at exit A3 but I would suggest taking exit A2 as you can see.

Cheung wan to the bus

By bus:

You can take bus 81 anywhere along Nathan Road from Jordan Road onwards. Check out the bus stops and look for the correct number. We got dropped off at the stop by Mong Kok Station. You may have to try out several bus stop before you find the one servicing 81.But make sure that you are on the correct side of the road! Bus 'map'

On the right is an image I took of the bus stop we were at. it shows where you are and which way the bus will go.

Get off at the Shek Lei Pui Reservoir stop just before the bridge. Check out the KMB website for further information.

To reach the park from the road, follow the access road next to the toilet block. It will take you down to the southern end of Kowloon Reservoir from where you can join  one of the various smaller walks.                    IMG_1852 IMG_1843
