Please note the Disclaimer at the end which is reproduced here:-

People join this walk and any other walks organised by me, or via HK Trampers, at their own risks. Neither the walk organiser, nor HK Trampers, nor anyone involved with HK Trampers, shall be held responsible in any way for any injury, death or loss incurred, or for damage to personal property caused due to whatever causes including, but not limited to, negligence, neglect, errors of judgement and inadequate orientation skills on the part of the walk organiser, HK Trampers, or anyone involved with HK Trampers.  Any parties who show up at the time and place on the day to join the walk will be deemed to have agreed to and unconditionally accepted this disclaimer.

 

 

1.   This Sunday, 29th June 2014, we’ll do a three-boot stream walk on the western side of Lantau Island.  We’ll meet at 10.15 a.m. at Exit A inside Tung Chung MTR station.

 

2.     From the MTR station, we’ll take the bus to near Tai O to start the stream walk.   We’ll walk upstream in a southwesterly direction towards Nga Ying Shan.  Before we hit the Shan top, we’ll exit the stream and walk in a southerly direction on a trail to Man Cheung Po.  This first part of the stream walk will take about 4 hours.    .

 

3.     At near Man Cheung Po we’ll do the second part of the stream walk.  This second part is shorter, and is about 2 hours.

 

4.     After the stream walk, we’ll walk along the Keung Shan Country Trail to Sham Wat Road where we can take the bus back to Chung Chung or Mui Wo.

 

5      The two streams in this walk are very beautiful, dotted with small waterfalls and pools which are perfect for a dip along the way in the hot weather.  So, bring your camera and swim gear.

 

6.     Beware though, stream walk is slippery and you should wear skid-resistant shoes.  One good brand is ‘5.10’ but it seems it is available only in one shop in Hong Kong.  If you need further information on skid-resistant shoes, please call the Trampers hotline below.

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

8.   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.
