HKTR (Hong Kong Trash Removers) clean up Mac 2 and Sharp Peak Hong Kong Trail Runners put on their Samaritan hats to become Hong Kong Trash Removers. The idea was to restore the beauty of Sharp Peak by getting rid of all the garbage on the peak. Prior to the hike, I received intelligence reports…..
Two (clean) Trails Are Better Than One Choosing is a lot easier than you think Do you want a delicious slice of pizza with some extra cheese on it OR do you want a cup of mouth melting ice cream with some extra dark chocolate on it? I know what you’re thinking — do you…..
I was originally going to simply chill and laze away this rainy day but there is no greater action-inducing driving force than a threat to one of my properties. It’s like the animal kingdom. A hippo, for instance, hates it when another creature encroaches into his territory. He immediately defends what rightfully belongs to him……
For a change, I went on a hike, yes, not a run, but a hike! Ironically, this is probably one of the very few “hiking” posts published on this hiking domain, www.hikeinhongkong.com. This was no ordinary hike. I joined the Meetup group on a very special hike to my luxury property in Sai Kung, i.e……
As part of my penultimate training for next week’s HK100, I was torn between deciding which of my two luxury homes to visit – Plover Cove or Sharp Peak. After much contemplation, I eventually decided on Sharp Peak. It was a cold day. It seemed like even the cows in Pak Tam Chung were exercising…..
I usually don’t like to brag about how rich I am but sometimes this kind of bragging boosts my self-esteem. So, today, I’ll publicly show off my wealth. My home is over 30,000 square feet in size (contrast that to an average HKer who lives in less than 400 sq ft) and I own several…..
What could be a better way to start the Year of the Rabbit than to do a Sharp Peak circuit run? Actually, looks like my fitness took a toll. Energy wasn’t flowing that freely. Maybe the coffee today morning. (Had coffee after a very long time. Still bad for health). Good to bump into Roz’s…..
So, our original plan was to run the whole of Hong Kong Trail with a target time of 5 hours. Started at 0742 from the Peak and looked like everything was going great. We seemed to be on track. Weather was HOT but the clear visibility made Hong Kong look even more beautiful that it…..
A public holiday in Hong Kong can only mean one thing and that’s more hiking! So, today being a public holiday, it was time to hit my holiday home again on Sharp Peak. It was supposed to be rainy again and the skies did look pretty dark at 0600 in the morning. I took my…..
Started very early (0730 HKT) at the Peak. Actually, let me rephrase. Should have started very early (0730 HKT) at the Peak but unfortunately, I overestimated the speed of the minibus (Number 1 from Central). It’s bloody slow and stops at every nuke and corner. So ended up being 7 minutes late. We started at…..
The full set of pictures are here. In order to celebrate the purchase of my new hiking shoes, it was time to visit Sharp Peak again. Or rather, it was time to sneak up on Sharp Peak by climbing it from its rear. (yes, hikers can be a little perverted). So, joined the Meetup group…..
A little bit of a recap to begin with. Saturday last week: I was running down Sharp Peak at quite a fast pace and sadly, my attention shifted from the beauty of the trail to the beauty of a group of Asian women tourists climbing up Sharp Peak. And as the saying goes, “behind the…..
Pictures from this hike are here. Decided to escape into the world of running and hiking by doing a Mac 1, 2 run/hike at 0945 with my elite team. The weather was perfect for a run. Misty, not hot and some gentle breeze. Mac 1 was a breeze to complete. It took me about 48…..
I think I can safely (and proudly) claim to be the only hiker in Hong Kong who has been up on the summit of Sharp Peak more than anyone else within a span of 3 years. That’s at least around 150+ times (easily!) and in all kinds of weather. I have been on the summit…..
