Lam Tsuen Country Park is situated in the Northern New Territories. Designated in 1979, it commands a total area of 1,520 hectares that spans over Tai Po, Fanling and Yuen Long. The park is divided into two parts by Fan Kam Road : Tai To Yan and Kai Kung Leng. It is an attractive country park with grand uplands, sylvan woodlands and gurgling streams. The two summits Tai To Yan and Kai Kung Leng rank 9th and 10th respectively among Hong Kong's peaks. Both rugged volcanic crests, they command a towering presence in the Lam Tsuen lowlands.
Kadoorie Farm nearby and the woodlands behind Pak Ngau Shek Village are extremely rich in flora. In these pastoral plantations, you find Machilus species, Taiwan Acacia (Acacia confusa) and Brisbane Box (Lophostemon confertus). In the forests behind Pak Ngau Shek Village, a 20 m row of Acacias make up a green firebreak that can effectively stop hillfires from spreading.
