Disclaimer

People join this walk at their own risks. I shall not be held responsible in any way for any injury or death incurred or any loss or damage to personal property caused due to whatever causes including, but not limited to, negligence, neglect, errors of judgment and inadequate orientation skill on my part. The fact that you show up at the time and place on the day to join the walk is an implication that you have agreed to and accepted unconditionally this disclaimer.

Warning:  This stream trekking is really a 3 boot hike (maximum rating in Trampers), exclusively intended for seasoned hikers with good experience in rock climbing, hopping across large boulders, and bush whacking. They join the hike at their own risk and shall not be afraid of rock cliff climbing / height / bush whacking.  Pair of gloves, long trousers and shoes/sandals with non-slip soles are required.

 

This Sunday, the Trampers will have a hard 3-boot stream trekking in Lantau Island. Please be aware this is an exploration hike as none of us have been to this stream and will help each other navigate. This event is only open to experienced stream hikers. Do not sign up if you have other appointments planned or have worries of getting lost.

We will meet at 9:00am DIRECTLY at the 3M bus stop outsideTung Chung MTR Station to ensure all of us board the same bus. We shall take the 9:15am bus to San Shek Wan stop in South Lantau Road and look for the stream opening. Please don’t be late because the bus won’t wait.

We will stream trek until reaching the catch water road of Lantau Trail which is the first early exit option. We will continue the stream trek until reaching the South Lantau Country Trail at 400m and this is the second early exit option.

The final section of the stream is challenging the Green Dragon obstacles until we reach the Yi Tung Shan 二東area (around 700+m high). Once we reach Yi Tung Shan, we shall look for the water collection pools near Lantau Camp 爛頭營 to cool off. We may also take time explore rectangular cabin houses on the hillside.

Finally we shall descend to Pak Kung Au (and/or Mui Wo) via Lantau Trail where public transportation is available.

Kindly bring the Trampers necessities: non-slip shoes, gloves, sun block, hat, personal first aid, insect repellent, dry bag, swimming goggles, change of clothes, etc. Also, bring some lunch for along the way.

Please bring more water and energy (and headlamp/torch in case of overtime) as it will be a demanding ascent up to 750 meters high on a forecasted hot weather Sunday. 

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.
