Upcoming Hikes

Sun March 29, 2015: Pak Tam Chung to Sha Kiu
Led by: David (Tel/Whatsapp): 5329 4284
Meet: 10am at the Sai Kung bus terminus near the toilets
Description: Our traditional easter hike a week early this year. We`ll take bus 94 and alight at Pak Tam Chung. After walking briefly on the Mac 1 we`ll divert to the Sheung Yiu Country Trail, home to the Sheung Yiu Folk Museum. After returning briefly again to the Mac 1 we`ll once again divert to follow a coastal path to the fishing village of Sha Kiu, where we`ll enjoy a delicious seafood lunch before hopefully heading back to Sai Kung on a speed boat. Approx 4hrs walking time.

Should no boats be available we`ll have to return via the Mac 1 to Pak Tam Chung, which could be a further 2hrs (approx), so be prepared. Note that long pants and gloves (if you wear them) are recommended as the coastal path is brushy and overgrown in places. Before lunch a surprise awaits as we encounter prehistoric monsters from the past. The adventure starts soon!

Sun April 5 (Easter Weekend): Kau To Shan, Grassy Hill and a Labyrinth
Led by: Angela Tel:  9528 4251
Meet: 9:30 am at Fo Tan KCR Station

Sun April 26: Details soon
 

Sun Sept 6, 2015: Junk Trip
Led by: Amanda
Meet: 9:30 am at University MTR station
Description: We'll go aboard a junk in the morning and make a tour around the beautiful islands in the north-eastern part of Hong Kong. Remember to bring your swimming suit as we will definitely stop somewhere to swim. We may also take the opportunity to explore some of the islands after swimming. So, please bring along with you a pair of sandals good enough for walking along the shore. Food and drinks are NOT provided, so please bring whatever you need to survive the whole day. I'll divide the junk hire charge among the number of people who ACTUALLY show up. So, feel free to bring your friends along, but you need to book your places in advance. To book your place, or for more information, please email Amanda.

Hiking (almost) every week! More hikes coming soon.
