Wastes are spotted there, including rubbish plastic bags with beer and glass bottles. Broken concrete and bricks are also found. Several houses are abandoned in the village.
On the same day we took a further walk to Pak Lap, dumping and destruction of vegetation can be noticed at Pak Lap Village, Sai Kung.
There is a piece of abandoned land scattered with rocks and destroyed vegetations. Dumping was piled up next to some dried trees and large rocks. Construction tools and a construction truck can be observed.
Although there are government signs posting near the land saying “Government land. No unlawful occupation, tree fall, dumping and excavation”, it is likely that excavation has taken place and part of the vegetation has been cleared from the field previously. No government enforcement observed.
Next to the site is a path suspected to be illegally excavated in order to facilitate the driving of construction vehicles. Other than the hiking trial for hikers, there is a wider path scattered with small rocks.
Although there is a government sign posting at the path saying “Unauthorized vehicle or motorcycle is prohibited”, records of vehicle wheels can be spotted, which suggests construction vehicles are still driving to the site through the path.
