i was in HK again; just for a week, but there was enough time during the weekend to hike again in the wildness.
High Junk Peak
at first i did not enjoy this route at all – just after living the last buildings behind: there was ~25 min of walking up the narrow concrete stairs and then steep hill. then it got better – dense wood, with possibility to see the landscapes here and there – with the Hong Kong island on the one side, clear water bay on the other. at the end of my journey i took a mini bus towards Hang Hau and Po Lam stations.
i went there with an ex-work mate – Fung. i’m grateful that he has shown me that part of HK. we’ve taken bus nr 9 from the Shau Kei Wan Station MTR station and then hiked up the hill following the crowd. after ~40 min of going up we’ve reached the hill-tops and then went from one peak to another surrounded by low and dense bushes. the planned route turned out to be too short so we’ve then gone to the west-side coast, failed to catch a bus at Tai Long Wan and ended up in Shek O
