Itinerary

This Sunday, March 6, 2016, trampers will have a walk at Cloudy Hill (Kau Lung Hang Shan) in Pat Sin Leng Country Park.  We will meet at 10:30am at Exit B inside Tai Wo MTR Station (East Rail Line).  From Tai Wo MTR, we will start the walk passing through the nearby village and get into Wilson Trail Stage 8 for Cloudy Hill (440m).  Taking thousands steps ascending to Cloudy Hill, we could enjoy a beautiful panoramic view of Tolo Harbour & Tai Mo Shan.  After lunch-break on the hill top, we will head to Hok Tau Reservoir which is a tiny reservoir in S-shaped.  From there, we will take a dirt path to the abandoned villages – Ping Shan Chai and Sha Lo Tung.  Those abandoned village houses have been classified as heritage buildings by the HK SAR Government years ago.  At the end, we will finish the walk at Ting Kok Road, Tai Po via Fung Yuen. 

So, please show up in full gears with 2 litres of water, lunch, snacks, rain wear, a torch, sun block, gloves and mos-spray(but no cigarette).  If it is raining hard or thunderstorms are threatening, the walk may be cancelled.  If in doubt, call the trampers hotline 8209-0517 in the morning.
