Jardine's Lookout Tunnel SW slope [????- ]

This is a tunnel system believed to be built by the Japanese in WWII, i first visited it back in 2004

The Location and Getting There

It is to the south-west from the summit of Jardine's Lookout, next to a footpath which leads down to the two PB JLO1 and JLO2.

To get there i started from the AA site of HKVDC in Wong Ngai Chung Gap and followed the catch water towards JLO2. Took the stairs up JLO2 then continue pass the summer cottage, which passes a small tunnel mentioned here http://gwulo.com/node/2560
