Japanese Tunnel off Little Sai Wan Camp Road ( Tunnel 49) [????- ]

Submitted by Lewis on Thu, 03/21/2024 - 15:44

Japanese tunnel next to the Dragon's Trail.  Opening is through a small crack through a thin wall of concrete. Around 8-9 feet in length, with a length of around 60 metres. The first section of the cave is quite wide and spacious, with a side chamber to the left, however it narrows into a small squarish passageway for around 5 metres, until you reach a vertical shaft with a rock pile, from which you can climb to reach an exit, which has a clear view of the bay below. The tunnel circumvents the entire ridge, and there is some trash within the tunnel, probably from public works workers.

This tunnel is the largest of the three I visited today. From video 2:03 you may find trenches, the long trenches are still easily recognizable, surrounding the hills, and the entrance of this tunnel is connected to this trench.

This is the shortest and smallest of the three tunnels on Chiu Keng Wan Shan. It is a dead end with a small room near the entrance, a stone bed is embedded in the room.

The video part for this tunnel starts at 0:30. Sorry for the camera issues you may have to rotate your necks (left 90 degrees) to view it comfortably.

Japanese Tunnel at Black Point [????- ]

I was doing a bit of unrelated research when I came across an interesting EIA report (https://www.epd.gov.hk/eia/register/report/eiareport/eia_1252006/html/ex...). It seems that back in 2006 there was a plan to build a Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) receiving terminal at Black Point (https://goo.gl/maps/eTRsMMFojdxTUNu2A), though it appears to have been subsequently abandoned.
