大榄涌千岛湖

水塘中小岛众多,形状大小不一,拥有千岛湖的美誉。大榄涌水塘沿塘都有山径或马路可供行走:塘北一段是昔日麦理浩径第十段的路线;塘南是水泥马路,两段的高度都接近水塘水平。改道后的麦理浩径第十段位置虽然较高,但如要下瞰千岛湖,则须另觅登山路线。

大榄涌水塘的千岛湖美景,壮丽而且诗情画意,大榄涌水塘虽然是个水塘,但看起来却是恬静如镜的湖泊,上面一个个翠绿的小岛山丘,对照着天上的白云,如仙境般美。旅程由元朗大棠出发,经杨家村,到黄泥墩水塘沿山径上山,这里是俯瞰大榄涌千岛湖的最佳位置;沿路更会遇到大自然奇景「神仙辙」,是个大开眼界之旅。

Tai Lam Chung Reservoir

Tai Lam Chung Reservoir was built between 1952 and 1957 in Tai Lam Country Park. To strengthen the structure, the reservoir is designated as the afforested area, and Maclehose Trail Stage 10 passes the north side of the reservoir. Therefore, it is not only a cool place to visit in summer, but also a very popular scenic spot to see maple in later autumn.

Before the reservoir was filled up, there were many hills inside. Nowadays, those hills have become dozens of small islands in the reservoir, which makes it look like the Thousand Island Lake (Qiandao Lake) in Zhejiang Province in China.
