1.   This Sunday, 29th September 2013, we’ll do a stream walk on Lantau Island.  We’ll meet at 10.15 a.m. at Exit A inside Tung Chung MTR Station (MTR Tung Chung Line).

 

2.     From the MTR Station we’ll walk to Pak Mong and further on to Tin Liu where we’ll start the stream walk.

 

3.     We’ll walk upstream in an easterly direction for about three hours until we hit dry groundand then we’ll try and find a way to walk to Lo Fu Tau.  From Lo Fu Tau it is an easy way to walk down to Discovery Bay or Mui Wo or Tung Chung.

 

4.     This stream is little visited because of its remoteness, but it has a charm of its own and is very worth a visit.  There are some rock pools along the stream, and so if you want to have a dip in the pools you should bring along your swim gear.

 

5.   Please note that stream walks are slippery and you should wear skid-resistant shoes in this walk. 

 

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

 

7.   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.
