Wang Chung Stream - Dragon Ball Waterfall 橫涌石澗-龍珠瀑
Hong Kong

新娘潭橫涌石澗是香港九大石澗之一,包含煙水濛朧的龍珠瀑,碧水盈盈的霜碧潭,鬼斧神功的紅番石,還有如絲縈繞的繞絲溪,有行山人士形容橫涌石澗猶如人間樂土。

橫涌石澗的特色是山路、石路各半,愛探險者可爬懸崖登瀑布之巔,穩陣的可沿山路小徑行近石澗觀瀑布。若由新娘潭出發,即由涌尾石澗底部往橫山頭澗走,途中再經過數個有名或無名的深潭瀑布。船灣淡水湖先由山路入澗通往船灣淡水湖的地龍向上游進發,一瞬間就深入石塊、石坡及石崖之中。
由於澗容甚寬,相對地流水量卻不多,但石頭起伏不一。接着行山徑小路上瀑布頂,行約半小時,便到橫涌石澗最氣勢磅礡的龍珠潭及龍珠瀑布。
龍珠瀑分成上下兩層,兩層之間有一個龍珠潭,下層又另有龍珠下潭。上層瀑布高約8米,龍珠潭的邊長約4米,承接上層的河水,氣勢逼人,龍珠潭的東口平滑,潭水瀉出,一落11米,形成「龍珠下瀑」。下層瀑布的是一條飛瀑,另有三角形深潭,潭面不大。
橫涌石澗. 甫進澗道已是高崖互接流瀑相連, 連接得天衣無縫的龍珠上、下瀑, 龍珠瀑, 澗內勿隨意下水, 霜碧潭, 高處下瞰霜碧潭. 澗內非洲紫羅蘭, 短瀑清潭, 石面上的流
橫涌石澗,香港十大最美麗河溪之一,它位於八仙嶺北,其源頭來自黃嶺及八仙嶺一帶,水源會合後流經橫山腳下迂迴曲折的「繞絲溪」,再經有東北五潭之一號稱的「霜壁潭」及「龍珠瀑」,最後流入大埔船灣淡水湖。
This stream is made famous by this majestic waterfall, DragonBall Waterfall(龍珠瀑). This waterfall is dividied into upper and lower portion. The lower portion is taller than the upper half. This picture shows the lower half. The two portions add up to about 35M in height.

More About Hong Kong

Overview and HistoryHong Kong sits on the south coast of China, on the Pearl River Delta. It's got a population of more than seven million people and is one of the most densely populated places on earth. It also appears to be putting into place the template for population management, which cities around the world will be implementing as soon as they can afford it. More on that later.Archaeological evidence dates human activity beneath present-day Hong Kong back to the stone age. The area was first settled by people from the mainland during the Han dynasty, around the beginning of the common era (the P.C. term for when B.C. changed to A.D. Whoa!)For hundreds of years, Hong Kong was a small fishing community and haven for travelers, with a few pirates here and there. Then whitey showed up.Western influence reached China at the beginning of the 15th century, when all those great explorers in boats were cruising for loot in strange and mysterious places. Tea and silk were the commodities connecting eastern Europe to China, and Hong Kong was known as a safe harbor through which to pass. When you're carrying the Queen's tea, it's especially important to avoid ARRRRRRguments with pirates. Hyuk hyuk hyuk.Seriously folks -- in the eighteenth century Britain was doing a booming business with China, offering Indian opium to balance their extensive purchases of fine porcelains and everything else. The opium was ordained to be for medicinal purposes only, of course.Well, as you may imagine, the Chinese got sick of opium fiends junking up the place, so they attempted to stop the British suppliers, to no avail. The Opium Wars resulted and ended with China ceding Hong Kong to the British, in fear of their massive naval power. This took place in the year 1841.Colonization soon followed, Hong Kong shot up in value as an international port, and its population increased dramatically. In 1898 Britain acquired additional territories on a 99 year lease -- expiring in 1997. Does that year sound familiar? Read on.In the 20th century Hong Kong changed hands several times. The British surrendered it to Japan during World War Two, then took it back after Japan's defeat, then gave it to China later. Immediately following the war, Hong Kong served as a safe haven for hundreds of thousands of Chinese refugees, while the Chinese National Government was losing its civil war against communist leadership.The population of Hong Kong exploded as corporations seeking to escape Chinese isolationism arrived and set up shop. Cheap labor in the textile and manufacturing industries steadily built up the economy and ensured foreign investment. By the end of the 20th century Hong Kong had become a financial mammoth offering banking services to the world.In 1997 Hong Kong returned to Chinese rule with a few stipulations in place to guarantee its economic autonomy, as much as possible. The phrase "one country, two systems" was coined by the Chinese to describe the relationship between the mainland and Hong Kong.Getting ThereWell, where do you want to get to from the Hong Kong International Airport? There are ferries servicing six mainland ports in the Pearl River Delta Region. Airport Express Railway connects directly to downtown Hong Kong, and it has been rated the best airport in the world multiple times.The Airport Express Railway will get you into Hong Kong in about an hour, for $100. Public buses cost $10 and take a little longer. For direct service to your hotel you can take one of the hotel's private buses ($120+) or a taxi ($300+). As you can see, waiting time is optional for those who can afford it.Here's a little blurb on travel times, with further information for access to nearby cities (cross-boundary transport).TransportationGrab an Octopus card when you arrive. Octopus is the world's first electronic ticket-fare card system and the Hong Kong public transportation system is the world leader in people-moving. 90% of Hong Kongers get around on public transportation.Octopus covers the Airport Rail line, buses, ferries, the rapid-transit MTR network, supermarkets, fast food outlets, phone booths... It's how to get around the cashless economy.Nevermind the microchip built into it, you'll get used to having one of those on you at all times -- and soon they'll be internal! What do I mean? Many schools in Hong Kong even use the Octopus card to check attendance, because you read the card's data with an external scanner from a distance. This will the global norm soon. What if that chip is installed in your body? It's in the works baby!The hilly Hong Kong terrain also demands some special modes of transportation. If you've been to Pittsburgh, you may have some idea of how cool it is to ride a cable car up the side of a mountain, overlooking a majestic harbor and city. Multiply that by about ten thousand and you've got Hong Kong: vertical-travel trams, moving sidewalks, and the world's longest outdoor escalator system.People and CultureThe local currency is the Hong Kong dollar (HKD) which is pegged to the U.S. dollar. Official languages are Chinese and English.  You're on your own, baby!  Dive into the swarming, throbbing, pulsing, crawling and teeming mix!Things to do & RecommendationsThe Peak Tower and its shopping Galleria are the biggest tourist attraction in Hong Kong so don't miss it.Cool off in the Kowloon Park public indoor swimming pool!After that, go see what's happening at the Hong Kong Fringe Club, a non-profit organisation which puts together exhibitions for international artists and performers.Organize sports fans flock to the Hong Kong Stadium, but there's good news for disorganized sportistas too -- Mountain biking is now legal in the parks! Have at it, baby!All this excitement is going to make you hungry. Springtime is traditionally the time to celebrate seafood, summer is for fruits, and winter steams with hot pot soups to keep you warm.The best thing to do is go and find some dim sum. Dozens of plates of tasty small items, sort of like sushi but it's cooked, and the varieties are endless.Since you won't be able to walk down the street without complete and total sensory overload, I'll just whap in the Hong Kong tourist board's guide to dining and leave you to your intuition.Good luck, take it slow and above all -- DON'T SPIT OUT YOUR CHEWING GUM ON THE SIDEWALK. Gum is legal but there's a $500 fine for intentional littering. Enjoy!Text by Steve Smith.
