One of my Regular Routes


One of the great things about living in the New Territories of Hong Kong is that you are never far away from a country hike. When you don’t have the time for a country hike, there are a lot of alternatives.

For example, the Lam Tsuen River runs the length of Tai Po, and this is one of my regular routes. I probably walk along a section of the river every day. The following photos are from several of these walks.

I never get bored walking along the river because there is always something to see. Sometimes it’s the people you come across.

As I have a self-imposed target of 5 kilometres a day, it is easy to reach that minimum strolling along at a gentle pace. And, as there are bridges at several locations along the path, it is easy to cross over for a different view. There is always something to see and plenty of seats and benches if you want to take a break.

If you want to go further, the Waterfront Park is a short distance away and, it is always worth a visit. You can see more information on the park here.

Starting small is the way to create sustainable steps

Happily married man to a wonderful lady. Living in Hong Kong. In my younger days I enjoyed hiking, camping and rock climbing. I've trekked in the Himalayas and climbed Mt. Kinabalu in East Malaysia.
