Itinerary

This Sunday, January 29, trampers will have a Wishing Tree Walk at the beginning of Rooster Year.  Just make a wish to All Trampers Good Health and Safe Hike for All Year Round.

We will meet at 10:30am at Tai Wo MTR Station (East Rail Line) near Customer Service Counter at Exit A (outside the turnstile).  We will take the bus no. 64K to Kadoorie Farm where we could start the walk heading up to Tai To Yan (565m).  At top of Tai To Yan, we not only enjoy a panoramic view of Kam Tin Lowland as well as Shek Kong Military Airfield but also learn the meaning of "Tai To Yan" (Razorback).  Following the dirt trail along the ridge toward north, we will take the Ngau Kwu Leng Hiking Trail descending to Lam Tsuen.  Over there, we will visit the Wishing Tree and end the walk by taking bus or mini bus back to Tai Wo MTR Station.

Bushwhacking and good balancing skill will be required.  Please show up in full gears withat least 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.
