Upcoming Hikes

SATURDAY Aug 16: Blacks Link & Tai Tam Night Hike
Led by: Jenny Tel: 9804 2172
Meet: 4 pm at the eastbound bus stop on Queensway near Admiralty Centre
Description: We'll walk Blacks Link, then to Parkview and around Tai Tam Reservoir and the heritage dams ending at Tai Tam Road and a minibus ride to Stanley and dinner. Walk takes around 2 hours.

Sunday Aug 24: Nam Chung Area Pools
Led by:
Kim Roberts (9187 4910)
Meet:
9:30 at Fan Ling KCR Station, inside near the Maxim's restaurant
Walking Time:
4 hours + plenty of swimming and resting
Description: 
We'll take the minibus to Nam Chung and follow the Nam Chung Country Trail up to the first crossing of the Ping-Nam Stream. From there we'll follow the stream up to find and sample 4-5 gorgeous swimming holes. Please be prepared for some slippery sections and rock climbing along the stream bed. Definitely bring your swimmers as we'll be in and out of some beautiful pools. If the ground is too wet and slippery, we'll dip in the pools closer to the trail and consider hiking further on the Nam Chung Trail. Depending on our time and attitude, we may complete the Nam Chung Trail towards Fanling or just return the way we came.

Sunday Aug 31: Ma Dai Stream
Led by Angela Tel: 9528 4251
Meet: 9:00am at Tai Shui Hang MTR station, exit B
Description:
This is a big stream with lots of giant boulders and plenty of fun places to swim. The highlight is Hero Falls, which has a very deep pool beneath it. Bring your goggles or mask and snorkel as the water is usually clear and you can see all the way to the bottom. Frequent boulder hopping and non-technical rock climbing is necessary. Be prepared to get your feet wet.

Sunday Sept 7, 2014: 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 definitely will stop somewhere to swim. Besides, we might take the opportunity to explore some of the islands after swimming. So, please bring along with you a pair of sandals good enough for some walking along the shore. Food and drinks are NOT provided and hence 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 by email to Amanda.

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