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 Saturday, 20th December 2014, we’ll do a full 3-boot walk in foothills on the northern and southern sides of Lantau Peak.  We’ll meet at 10.30 a.m. at Exit A inside Tung Chung MTR station.

 

2.     From the MTR station, we’ll walk to Shek Mun Kap and from there find a dirt trail running along a ridge up to near Ngong Ping.  Before we reach Ngong Ping, we’ll find another trail to climb, steeply, up to the summit of Lantau Peak.  .

 

3.     We’ll decide what we’ll do once up on Lautau Peak.  One option is to walk to the ‘South Gate’ and descend Lautau Peak on its southern side and then walk on the East Kau Nga Ling ridge to Tong Fuk to end the walk.  If time does not permit this ambitious endeavour, we’ll just find an easier way to walk either to Pak Kung Ngau or Shek Mun Kap to finish the walk there.

 

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

 

5.   Note that this walk, unlike most other Trampers walks, is on a Saturday.

 

6.   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.
