Itinerary

 

Being still within the 2 weeks since the Year of the RAM starting on 19 February 2015, the regular hiking convenors (Francis, Ringo, KK, Liz, Simon, Dennis, Dominic, Nerissa and KW) wish all Trampers a prosperous New Year of the RAM -

 

GOOD HEALTH, GOOD LUCK, GOOD FORTUNE

and ALL DREAMS COME TRUE.

 

 

 

A 1.5 BOOT route is proposed for 1 March 2015 to Lai Chi Wo around Yan Chow Tong Marine Park in North East  NewTerritories. By going in a loop, it is the symbolic gesture in Chinese of - 

 

GOING ROUND FOR A FORTUNE 

 

新春

 

As usual in past years, I will bring some dumplings 湯圓 as a symbol of union of the group and everyone should have one piece!

 

 

 

 

We will meet at 10:30 am at Tai Po Market Station next to the Customer service / Ticket office, just outside the turnstiles of Tai Po Market Station.

 

We will take minibus 20C to Wu Kau Tang or share taxi. From Wu Kau Tang, we will pass Sheung Miu Tin, Ha Miu Tin, Sam A Chung to Lai Chi Wo. Possibly we may see how indigenous villagers in north east New Territories celebrate the Chinese New Year.

After Lai Chi Wo, we will climb some steps [the difficult part]  to Fan Shui Au (分水坳) and descend back to Wu Kau Tang to take mini bus 20C back to Tai Po, or down to Bride's Pool for bus back to Tai Po Market Station. 

 Please remember to bring : hat, sunscreen, mosquito repellent, good footwear, a lunch and plenty of water. An umbrella comes handy as protection against rain or sun.
