Short bus ride away, no more than 30 mins. Soon as you get off the bus at the Shek Lei Pui reservoir you are greeted by monkeys at the bus stop! I went alone and found myself on a road covered with them, I love monkeys but you have to be firm with them, I found myself talking to them all! Walk down Golden Hill road and walk onto the reservoir for the most amazing views! Bumped into a couple of big pigs/boars?? Which was a bit daunting as it was coming towards me on a bridge! But he just walked straight by. Go late afternoon as there were many of monkeys, went again for short visit in the morning but only saw a few. Amazing country side views just moments from the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong.

We went to the country park with no knowledge that it has a community of free-roaming macaques. One of the macaque snatched my drink from the back and i was traumatized for a while.

They are a bunch of little spoiled brats. They don’t even go in the forest to feed themselves, they just wait in the entrance of the park knowing that some tourists will feed them crap. It is forbidden to feed them and there is a reason, they are getting more and more agressive. So you get to the moutain, don’t even bother to go hiking, there is 50 of them on the side of the road waiting for you. We saw a women who got her food steal from her own hands, I got attacked for no reason (one of them jumped on my head and scratched my neck as I was walking by, not even looking at them or feeding them). If you decide to go, do some research on how to behave around them, don’t feed them, don’t under estimate them, they are not afraid of humans at all and easily provocated. A lot of people got attacked, even young children. Good luck!
