Welcome to Roz's Hiking Pages.

We are a friendly hiking group based in Hong Kong who do regular free weekly hikes, all over Hong Kong. Our hikes range from easy to difficult, so please take a moment of your time to read the information on this website before joining a hike. Any questions, let us know and we hope to see you soon.
SUN, APR 30, 2017: ROOSTER MOUNTAIN AND NGONG WO
Let`s do this steep, exposed but short hike before the weather gets too hot. We`ll start with a big climb on a rough trail, join the MacElhose Trail to top Kai Kung Shan, then double back on a long ridge, ending in Ngong Wo.


Meeting Point: 9:30am at the taxi stand at Wu Kai Sha MTR Station
SUN, MAY 7, 2017: YUEN TUN EXPLORATION
We`ll explore some new trails in the area of Sham Tseng and Yuen Tun, most likely with some small climbs at the beginning, maybe a little brush, and later more established trails including to view the Sham Tseng Settlement Reservoir and visit the old village museum at Yuen Tun. Don`t be surprised if we take some wrong turns or need to backtrack. Let`s start and end in Sham Tseng to sample some local restaurants. We`ll start with a tea or coffee at a quirky classic tea shop (if it is open) and finish with roast goose for lunch.


Meeting Point: 9:30 at Nam Kee Store, 10 Shan Hong Road, Sham Tseng.

It`s best to take a bus to Sham Tseng for example 962B from Causeway Bay or 52X from Prince Edward MTR Exit E.
SUN, MAY 14, 2017: MONASTERY VIEWING AND NGONG PING LUNCH
We'll make our way from the station, over a small hill, through a fishing village, along rural paths until we reach the base of the mountain. There are a number of Buddhist monasteries arranged around the hillside and we'll explore all the paths we can to look at all of them, mostly from a distance, and there are few we can walk through, quietly of course. The hike leader will also be ready to engage in conversation about the history of the area, Buddhist philosophy, and the nature of being alive. We'll climb slowly up to the high plateau of Ngong Ping where we can view the Big Buddha and eat the large group veggie lunch, or if the crowds are too much for us, perhaps just go to the little noodle joint for a quick snack.


Meeting Point: 9:30am Exit B, Tung Chung MTR station

SUN, MAY 28, 2017: TAI-O TO TUNG CHUNG
We will take a bus to the fishing village of Tai O and then make our way back to Tung Chung via a coastal path. The hike is mostly flat with only the occasional gentle slope, so it won't be too difficult in the heat. The views of the sea are beautiful from the headland. We`ll return to Tung Chung via Tung Chung Battery & Ma Wan Chung Fishing Village.


Meeting Point: 9:30am at Central Ferry Pier to catch the 9:40 ferry to Mui Wo

SATURDAY, JUN 10, 2017: CASTLE PEAK EVENING CLIMB
We will start walking up from Leung King on a concrete road up about 300 meters and continue on a natural trail for another 200 meters up toward Castle Peak to watch the sunset (around 7:00pm), a spectacular 360 degree vista of northwest Hong Kong gradually fall into red around us. The route is not very difficult but it is quite steep uphill all the way to the top. Also prepare for a few eroded or gravelly grounds during the climb. After stopping for a while to look at the scenery, we will take steps down to Tuen Mun and civilization. So bring a torch and enough water (uphill in the beginning is mostly exposed!). Note: Don`t be late! We will be racing against the clock to get to the top before sunset!


Meeting Point: 4:00 pm at Leung King Light Rail Station next to Circle K, Tuen Mun Please note this hike is on a Saturday!
SUN, JUN 18, 2017: SHADY HONG KONG ISLAND WALK

Meeting Point: 9:00am in Pacific Place near the pedestrian bridge to Queensway Plaza, Admiralty
SUN, JUN 25, 2017: CHEUNG CHAU ISLAND STROLL
We'll wander around Cheung Chau Island to see some of the sights including interesting rocks, shady paths, sea views. Bring your swimmers for a dip in the ocean. We'll have lunch in a local restaurant before heading home.

SUN SEPT 10, 2017: JUNK TRIP
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. The charge each of us needs to pay ranges from HK$200 to HK$300. 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.


Meeting Point: 9:30 am at University MTR station (It's the one immediately before 'Tai Po Market' Station on the East Rail Line. Please DO NOT mix it up with 'HKU' Station, which is on the Hong Kong Island line.
Before joining any of our hikes, please take a moment of your time to read the following section, especially if you are new to hiking:

Hiking, Health & Safety

Hiking times are estimates only and should not be relied on. A short hike may end up being longer, a long hike may be shorter. It is not recommended you join a hike with us if you have other commitments the same day as we cannot 100% guarantee the finish time.

Our hikes are generally never cancelled if it rains. Depending on the trail we may change the route on the day. If a T8 (Typhoon Signal 8) is raised the hike will be cancelled. Please check our website and our facebook page for announcements on the day if you aren`t sure.

Finally, if you are coming along, please take a moment of your time to add the hike leaders number to your phone in case you need to contact the leader on the day.

Thank you,
Roz's Hiking Group
