Itinerary

Hiking led by KK and support by Tim and KW Lee

This Sunday, October 21, 2018, the Trampers are going to have a 3-boots walk to the Ma On Shan Peak.  We will meet at 11:00am at Bus Stand 94 at Sai Kung Bus Terminal and start the walk heading up to the Ma On Shan Country Park via local villages. We will pass stone rivers until Pyramid Hill. Further hike to the top of Ma On Shan where there is splendid view of Sai Kng on one side and Tolo Harbour, Shatin, Taipo on the other.

Then we will descend through the Hunchback, Tiu Shau Ngam and arrive the Ma On Shan Country Park BBQ site.

The hike will end at Hang On MTR Station.

Good balancing skill will be required.  Suggest to bring 2-3 litres of water/energy drink, lunch, snacks, fruits, rain wear, a flashlight, hat, sunblock, gloves, insect repellent, towel, extra clothing, First-Aid Kit.  Heavy gloves and long trousers etc are required as heavy bush whacking is expected.

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.
