Route D4 - Lok Ma Chau - Ho Sheung Heung
Brief Start at Lok Ma Chau Path and proceed to Lok Ma Chau Garden.  There is a viewing point in the garden, where you can overlook the vast area of fish ponds near Shenzhen River.  Then take the concrete path leading to the villages which are no longer included in the closed area since 2013.  Enjoy the scenery of the fishponds and farmlands along the way, which offers a stark contrast with the urban views of Shenzhen to the north of the tranquil ponds, and feel the distinctive rural flavor pervading the villages.  Continue along the riverside of River Indus (Ng Tung River) and River Beas (Sheung Yue River) to arrive at Ho Sheung Heung.  The route is generally smooth and easy to walk.
