This Sunday we will meet at 10:30am - Tung Chung MTR  station near the big map between Exits A&B. We will then take a bus to reach the start of the trail..

There are couple of ascents before we reach the turn off for the Shui Lo Chu Pools. The rock pools are less frequented and there are several levels. The top tier is just awesome place for a swim and the pools should be quite full after the downpour this week. To get there is a bit of rock scramble and the path is not clear so please come prepared. What with all the rain, the footing is bound to be slippery and extreme care is essential..

We will end the hike in Tai O. Do carry swim gear if you want a dip and change of clothes. Please also bring the trampers rucksack essentials PLUS an adventurous spirit!

If it is raining or threatening to rain (thunderstorm warning), the walk will still go ahead but we will hike on another part of Lantau. If in doubt on the morning of the walk, call 8209-0517. And remember -- don't be late! The ten minute waiting rule applies.

Remember to bring all the usual gear, in particular lots of water at least three litres, good shoes, sun block and a hat. Also, bring some lunch for along the way.
