Route A3 - Shing Mun Reservoir – Pai Tau Village
Brief Shing Mun Country Park, located south east of Tai Mo Shan, is full of intersecting footpaths and lyrical scenery.  The Shing Mun Reservoir lying amid lush hills, reservoir walks, Tai Shing Stream, woodlands of paperbark trees and the arboretum are the major attractions.  Walk along the woodland paths around the reservoir and head for Sha Tin via To Fung Shan after crossing the pass between Grassy and Needle Hills.  Alternatively, you may take a footpath on the left leading to Pai Tau Village and visit the Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery before proceeding to Sha Tin if you are physically fit for it.  The early section of the route comprises uphill restricted access of the reservoir while the later section comprises downhill footpaths.
