Hung Mo Kiu and Ko Po Path

Hung Mo Kiu traverses the middle stream of the Kam Tin River. It was initially a temporary iron bridge built by British troops stationed in Hong Kong, whom the villagers later referred to as "Hung Mo Guai" i.e. "red-haired ghosts". Hence, Hung Mo Kiu i.e. "bridge of the red-haired ghosts" was named after it. Ko Po Path is located below Hung Mo Kiu.
