CUAAHK Island Hike around Tai Tam Reservoirs
Sunday, April 11, 2021
Before it gets too hot, let's go hiking! And this time you also have an opportunity to make your hiking effort count and fundraise for a cause.
Meeting Time: Sunday, April 11, 11:00 am
Meeting Location: Intersection of Tai Tam Reservoir Road and Wong Nai Chung Gap Road (https://goo.gl/maps/8Mej8X5sukdTSpH2A)
Duration: 11:00 am – 2:30 pm (excluding return transport/lunch/drinks).
Hike Map and details: (the exact route will be finalized closer to the hike and shared, but to get an idea, the following links can be referred to)
This will be an easy to moderate hike and will be an 8 - 9 km hike. En route, we intend to walk along the various scenic reservoirs on Hong Kong Island. After the hike, we will have options to have a late lunch and/or chilled beers.
Since April is Hike for Hospice Month, with this event, CUAAHK is promoting fundraising for the Society for the Promotion of Hospice Care (SPHC / 善寧會).
If you are interested, pls register at https://www.fringebackerevents.com/events/hike-for-hospice-2021/) Although there is no registration fee for the event, if you decide to fundraise, participants are encouraged to create a personal online fundraising page at FringeBacker and raise as much as you possibly can for the cause (minimum suggested HKD 100 per person). All proceeds will help terminally ill patients and their families receive hospice and palliative care and bereavement counselling. Please note the fundraising is optional and is not needed to join the hike.
Please confirm attendance by RSVP on our CUAAHK Facebook event page and feel free to post any questions there or on the Columbia Hiking Whatsapp Group ( https://chat.whatsapp.com/HROoxq0Sk8KFRenGbGFhqj ). Please note the exact meeting point and hike details will also be shared here.
Please contact Jas (+852-5166-0020) if you encounter problems on the day of the event.
Please wear comfortable hiking shoes, sunscreen and appropriate outdoor gear (hike poles optional). Don’t forget to carry ample water, snacks and cash.
As a portion of the hike is an uphill trek, we do not recommend bringing strollers or children under 7 years old.
Please monitor the weather conditions and prepare accordingly. You can carry a rain poncho to be on the safer side.
