Hiking/Scrambling on 30/8 - Ling Fung Stream (凌風石澗), possibly Man Cheung Po (萬丈布) on the way out.

Looking for someone to head to Ling Fung Stream (凌風石澗)on the 30th August, it's a Friday.

For those who know where it is great, if you don't, it's near Tai O (大澳) . It's a lovely stream divided into 3 sections, pretty famous for not having boring bits and it's friendly enough for most if you're an outdoorsy person. Heaven if you climb.

Not sure about meeting time yet but probably early, at Tung Chung (東涌) so we can all catch the bus to Tai O together.

The plan would be to trek the whole of Ling Fung Stream, then depending on the ability of the group we'll either walk back to Tai O, via a good path, or if we're quick then we can walk a bit further, and descend via Kau Kuk (九曲)Stream into Man Cheung Po (萬丈布) and then towards Yi O (二澳)and walk back to Tai O. (That'll make it a trip past sunset :D )

Trying to keep the group size to medium, minimum would be 2 (me and you), probably maximum of 8 and certainly not over 10.

It'd be great for anyone to tag along but ideally you'd be able to take care of yourself (only saying that as I've seen people who literally don't know what they're doing and that got really dangerous) and won't expect baby sitting. There are paths around more or less all the hard bits so there isn't any necessary climbing though scrambling and steep paths would be expected. Spare set of clothes, bags to keep your belongings dry would be needed. Most likely will involve swimming. Shoes with a good grip too. (And flip flops :P )

Here's some info about the stream. If you don't know chinese, ignore the words but the order is pretty much what it's going to be like.

Hope to see you there. Best message me if you're in then I'll get an event going :)

not decided yet. I'm still in england and won't be back till the 29th August. I'm thinking early ish (probably around 8am) in Tung Chung.
If you're in Kowloon I live in Hung Hom so maybe we can even meet for breakfast.

Just wondering if you'd be able to find me via email. it's hfac1988@gmail.com

I'm in the process of moving houses so have no internet apart from the crappy phone network.

I'll try sort it from there.

Have you done much in the streams too? (would be great if you're up for Kau Kuk and Man cheung :D )

Speak soon.
