This Sunday, 19th May 2013, we’ll do a walk in the northeastern part of the New Territories.  We’ll meet at 10.30 a.m. at the Customer Services Centre cum Ticketing Office inside Tai Po Market MTR Station (on the East Rail)

From the MTR Station we’ll take transport to A Shan Village where we’ll start walking.

From A Shan we’ll climb the hills up to Sha Lo Tung, and from the Tung we’ll walk via Ping Shan Chai to Nam Shan Mei.  From the Mei we’ll climb Ping Fung Shan.  Once on top, we’ll descend the other side of the Shan to Tsat Muk Kui, and from the Kui we’ll find a way to Bride’s Pool where we’ll end the walk.

For about one hour of the way between Upper Tsat Muk Kui and Lower Tsat Muk Kui,  it is walking in a stream and so you may care to bring along a pair of sandals for stream walking.  There is an opportunity for a dip in rock pools along the stream to wipe off the sweat before dinner and so you may care to bring your bathing gear.

Things to bring:

Bring all the usual things, a lunch, enough water, a torch, sun block, mos spray and if weather looks dodgy, rain gear.

If it is raining hard or thunderstorms are threatening, the walk might be cancelled. If in doubt, call the Trampers hotline 8209-0517 in the morning.
