Shing Mun Reservoir Japanese Tunnels (below redoubt) [c.1943- ]

Date Place completed: 
c.1943-11-30 (Year, Month, Day are approximate)

Up the first flight of stairs on the Maclehose trail going towards Shing Mun Redoubt. At the first flat path section there will be one or two large 'cuttings' into the earth, below the trail. Directly below about 10-15 Meters is the larger, accessible tunnel. This one had lots of bush and vines going into the portal, and had obviously had not been entered in quite a while. The tunnel is of standard width-height of the smaller ones and had a split. Both splits get much more narrow until inaccessible, but still go on. The total length of tunnel accessible is around 30-35 meters.

JLO SW slope Level 3

Revisiting my recent memories of level three. I havent explored that junction more than once, it is partially collapsed and very unstable. Not for the faint of heart.

Devils Peak Tunnel Mid-Section

Perhaps the cleanest tunnel I have encountered. Never have I even seen bugs there.
