Sun Dec 21, 2014: Christmas Walk and Picnic
Led by: Kim 9187 4910, mkimroberts@hotmail.com
Meeting time and place: 10am at fountain area by main bus terminal in Sai Kung
Difficulty level: Moderate but maybe fairly long
Things to bring: Something to share for the Xmas lunch out on the peninsula
(towards Tai Long Tsui, Sai Kung)
Description: We will catch the bus/taxi to end of Mac 2 and walk towards Tai Long Wan beach along Mac 2 (the first part maybe a bit boring for those who have been on it many times, but I promise you it gets better) until we come to the beach, and then we head out onto the peninsula. The last time I did this walk which was ages ago, we had sunny blue skies and it was brilliant having a picnic lunch out at the head. Hope for the same again. Then it's back to Maclehose and then it's up to us. Last time, we came back past Sai Wan beach. It made it quite a long walk and we did finish in the dark, but as it is along well paved path, no worries & finished at pavilion and caught a cab back to Sai Kung, or alternatively go back the way we came in. All depends how much time and walking you want to do. We finished up with a very nice meal in Sai Kung - it ended up being a full day out.

Sun Dec 28, 2014: Sai Kung North Exploration
Led by: Angela Tel: 9528 4251
Meet: 9:20 am at Sai Kung main bus terminus near the shallow pool. We'll take the 94 bus at 9:30 sharp! Latecomers can taxi to the trailhead.

Description: From Wong Shek Pier we'll see if we can find Sze Tei to bag a new (very small) peak. From there we'll head across the Hoi Ha Road and follow the long ridge top to Shek Uk Shan, the biggest climb of the day. Next we'll head down Jacobs Ladder and hopefully find some tau fu fa in Yung Shue or thereabouts. We'll walk on the road along the shoreline to catch a bus on the Sai Sha Road.

Then we walk along the Shek Pik Country Trail before turning right to enter the western trail of Kau Nga Ling, or the "dog teeth range". You will need to use hands to climb this steep and exposed section, so you might want to bring gloves. We will be rewarded with a great sense of excitement and spectacular views! Then we will go through the outskirts of Ngong Ping and move to Nei Lak Shan Country Trail, before coming down the mountain on the cable car donkey trail. The day's adventure ends in Tung Chung.
