With the rains in the last week, we will have another stream trekking.

This coming Sunday, 7 June 2015, we will do a stream trekking  in the Middle of the New Territorities  - the Lotus Stream.  Those seasoned hikers who are interested please assemble at 10:30 am at the Yuen Long bound bus stop immediately after the Tai Lam Tunnel Toll Collection point.

How to get to the Tai Lam Tunnel Toll bus stop?

Buses from HK Island or Kowloon coming out from the Tai Lam Tunnel to Yuen Long/Tin Shui Wai will all stop there.  Please visit these links for further info:

Warning:  This stream trekking involves rock climbing, hopping across large boulders, and bush whacking.  This is intended for seasoned hikers who are with good sense of balance and are not afraid of rock cliff climbing / height / bush whacking.  Pair of gloves, long trousers and shoes/sandals with good traction, as well as headlamp / torch, are highly recommended.


We will start from the bus stop and walk up to the catchment to Kat Hing Bridge before entering the Lotus Stream.  Though this stream is not as gorgeous as the Double Deer Stream, it has its only tranquilizing beauty.  The upper part of the stream is walled by steep v-shaped valley where the stream meanders along at a lower level.     You will be required to hop across rock boulders, climb along rock face and overhanging cliffs, and maybe wade through the stream.  You are expected to have a good sense of balance, courage, and team spirit to be able to enjoy the trek.  There are a number of pools along the stream for a quick swim.   Opting out of the stream once you will do bush whacking.  So please come prepared and bring along your swimmer and proper gears. We will finish our hike at Shum Tseng via Ching Fai Tong. 

Please bring all the usual gear, in particular lots of water, good shoes, gloves and a hat, as well as mosquito repellant.  Also, bring some lunch for along the way. If it is raining or threatening to rain, the walk will still go ahead but we may change the route accordingly.  If in doubt on the morning of the walk, call the hot line 8209-0517.  Please don't be late.  The 10 minutes rule is in force.
