Training Diaries 2014: Tai To Yan and Tai Mo Shan Waterfalls Tai To Yan: It means “Knife’s edge” in Chinese but I don’t think it is quite as ominous as it sounds. Something like Sharp Peak is probably more deserving of that title. What Tai To Yan does deserve, however, is a entry into the…..
Tai To Yan (Knife’s edge ridge), Tai Mo Shan Waterfalls and Kadoorie Farm We set out to do what we called the “Nature’s Call” hike. Not only because we wanted to answer nature’s call in the wild (i.e. go for a pee in the peace and tranquil of nature), but also because we wanted to…..
Full set of pictures here. I thought I had hiked and/or run pretty much all the trails that Hong Kong has to offer but I had no idea that I was missing the thrill of running along the ridge of a Knife’s Edge. And by that I mean, Tai To Yan which is supposed to…..
A thunderstorm two days back and sunshine today could only mean one thing – it was time for a stream trek! And, speaking of stream treks in Hong Kong, there’s one particular waterfalls which is like the Cindy Crawford of all the waterfalls in HK. Now, by that I don’t mean old, I mean most…..

So, here’s a Hong Kong Nature 101 lesson and a Hong Kong Capitalism 101 lesson. I’ll start of with HK Nature 101.

Hiking pictures here. 20-something Trampers showed up today for a day of waterfall exploration. There were several new faces too, including combat-ready Kevin from the UK, who had evidently paid utmost attention to the Tramper rucksack details listed on the website. He was wearing camouflage pants, had sturdy waterproof hiking boots on and several pouches…..
Hiking pictures are here. The brave ones: Despite Francis’ deadly threat of stripping down to his underpants for a swim, an unbelievably large number of psychologically strong Trampers (close to 40!) joined today, putting utmost faith in the powers of the Shui Lo Chu waters to cleanse their minds of any lasting impression of that…..
2009-06-07, Shui Lo Chu Pools Written by Vince, *excludes traveling time Shui Lo Chu Hong Kong is probably best known for its high end (and freezing) shopping malls but few would know that it is also home to some spectacular waterfalls. We will meet at 10.30 am at Tung Chung MTR outside the turnstile near…..
