Itinerary

This Sunday, April 10, 2016, trampers will have an easy one boot walk on Hong Kong Island due to the unstable weather condition.  So, please make sure you will come with your rain gear or umbrella.  We will meet at 10:30am, Wan Chai MTR Station (Island line), just outside the turnstile near the Customer Service / Ticketing Office.  From the MTR station, we will start the walk heading up to Wan Chai Gap.  Taking Black’s Link, we will hit Mount Nicholson with the height of 400m.  Keep following the flat concrete path to the eastern direction, we will pass Wong Nai Chung Gap and get into Tai Tam Country Park.  Then we will move to south eastern direction towards Tai Tam Tuk Reservoir where we will end the walk.  Over there, bus no. 14 to ShauKeiWan (or to Stanley Market) and mini bus to Chai Wan MTR (or Stanley Market) are available.

Please show up in full gears with 1.5 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.
