Please come but prepared and bring all the usual gear, in particular water, snacks and lunch, gloves, a hat, umbrella/rain gear and good shoes etc.

Kai Kung Leng is exposed, without any shether and the Trampers will NOT go there in summer. Nevertheless with a few rain until Saturday, clear sky may be expected on Sunday 14 April 2013. Being the highest hill close to the Hong Kong / Mainland border, we could have a good view of Shenzhen at the top of the hill which is about 580m high. 

If it is raining or threatening to rain (thunderstorm warning), we may change our route where appropriate.  If in doubt on the morning of the walk, call 8209-0517.
