Itinerary

This Sunday, September 4, 2016, the Trampers are going to have a three boots stream trekking at Wong Chung Stream, Ho Chung.  We will meet at 9:30am outside the turnstile of Diamond Hill MTR Station, near ticket office.  Then we will take bus no. 92 to Sai Kung direction and get off bus at Ho Chung New Village to start the stream trek.  All the way heading up the stream, we will pass several waterfalls and also will have a fantastic view of Sai Kung Sea.  After the climb, we will hit MacLehose Trail Section 5 and head down to Tsz Wan Shan to finish the whole walk.

Bushwhacking and good balancing skill will be required. 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.
