This Sunday, March 13, 2016, trampers will have an easy one boot walk.  We all are going to enjoy The World Best Urban Hiking Trail at Dragon’s Back, Shek O which was selected by TIME Asia in 2004.  We will meet at 10:00am at ShauKeiWan MTR Station Concourse (outside the turnstile).  Then, we will take bus no. 9 to To Tei Wan on Shek O road to start the walk.  It will take about half an hour going uphill and we will reward a panoramic view with dramatic feel of Shek O coastal line and offshore islands.  Keep walking along the Dragon’s Back ridge, we might pass paragliders hurling themselves off the ridge as well.  After plenty of breaks for photo taking, we will take a dirt path under shade to Pottinger Gap (Ma Tong Au).  Following the concrete path and water catchment, we will head to Pottinger Peak where will lead us back to the urban, Siu Sai Wan. 

So, please show up in full gears with2 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.
