Home>> Geo Walk >> High Island Geo TrailHigh Island Geo Trail

(1 km for return route, about 1 hour)

 

          The High Island Reservoir is a water storage facility built in the 1970s by the Hong Kong Government. The project exposed various rock sections near the East Dam, which provides as ideal location for observing Hong Kong’s unique hexagonal volcanic columns at close range. Here one can also appreciate geological features such as faults, folds, twisted columns and dyke intrusions. (Please click here for more details.)
