Well-known as a Lantau hiking attraction, Man Cheung Po – Shui Lo Cho is a hidden jewel for nature enthusiasts and a “Site of Special Scientific Interest”.
As the source of fresh water for Tai O and Yi O residents, this is where tampering with water is strictly prohibited. You can reach Man Cheung Po from Tai O. Walk pass the promenade and Nam Chung Village, then walk along Section 7 to Nga Ying Kok Campsite. You will find a flight of stairs to climb up Man Cheung Po.
There are two parts in name of "Man Cheung Po - Shui Lo Cho". Translated literally, "Man Cheung Po" means a 10,000-foot tall waterfall, named for its resemblance to a white piece of cloth extending from the sky. "Shui Lo Cho", the second part of this unique name, was inspired by the loud roaring sound at the lower course of Man Cheung Po, near Yi O, after each heavy rainstorm. Visitors who have come to explore the natural side of Hong Kong must not miss Wong Lung Ravine, which is equally famous for its powerful stream of water.
