Itinerary

This Sunday, September 3, 2017, the Trampers are going to have a three boots stream trekking at Tai Shing Stream locating at Shing Mun Reservoir, Tai Mo Shan Country Park.  We will meet at 10:00am outside the turnstile of Exit C, Tsuen Wan MTR Station. Then we will share taxi to the Pineapple Dam of Shing Mun Reservoir to start the stream trek.  The first part of the walk will be both paved road and dirt trail before reaching the Tai Shing Stream.  We will visit some rock pools and stop for swimming.  Following the stream, we will reach "Fat Man Mak" where is the height of 455m.  Over there, we will take a dirt parth descending back to the main dam of Shing Mun Reservoir and take mini bus for Tsuen Wan to end the walk. Or for those with the energy, you can go up to Tai Mo Shan and descend down to Route Twisk and take bus 51 back to Tsuen Wan.

Rock scrambling, 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.
