Upcoming Hikes

Sat., August 8: Sam A Chung snorkeling, coast and 2 streams treks
Hike Leader: Keith Tel: 6050 2268
Meet: 9:20 am at Tai Po MTR exit opposite to the coffee shop.
Duration: 6 hours
Description: We shall start from the Bride's pool bus terminus and walk to the source of Sam Ah Chung and do a down-stream trek along its lower course until it hits the sea. At its river mouth where fresh and salt water meet we shall skin-dive to watch corals, fishes, crabs and curious marine creatures . Moving eastwards with a coast trek along the rugged shore, we shall hit Ma Niu Shui and start an upstream climb to a waterfall to rinse our salty body with fresh water. Entering the Ma Niu Ho stream course with some bushy parts, we shall move north to join the Sheung and Ha Mui Tin paths returning to the bus terminus. Bring enough water, gloves, a mask and a snorkel (optional). Recommend to wear shoes while entering the waters to prevent cuts from possible sharp edges hidden underwater. Hikers will be responsible for their own safety.

Saturday, Aug 15, 2015: Dragon's Back Night Hike
Led by: Jenny (Tel: 9804 2172)
Waking Time: Around 2hrs
Meet: 4:30pm at the Shau Kei Wan MTR station, Exit for the bus terminus
Description: We will do "the back" in the cool of the evening as the sun goes down. This gradually undulating, rather scenic amble will provide us with enough exercise to work up a good appetite for our usual Thai/Chinese restaurant in Shek O, the "rock (shek) beside the sea (O)".

Sunday, Aug 23, 2015: TBA

Sunday, Aug 30, 2015: TBA


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.

Hiking Recommendations

Please always bring plenty of water, sun protection and a snack. Also, in very bad weather or high air pollution, the hike may be cancelled. If in doubt call the hike leader. It if rains, we usually go anyway although we may change the route. 

Note that whatever the actual walking time, with travel and eating a meal afterwards, these hikes usually end up taking most of the day so don't expect to be back home until late afternoon/early evening unless specifically mentioned!!
