I was just introduced to Hong Kong trails latter part of last year and I’ve been wanting to do it, eversince. The last time I hiked a mountain was over ten years ago back in the Philippines. I guess that would make me a novice or an amateur hiker. After researching about Hong Kong trails and all, along with my wife and some friends, we decided to do it and unmask the side of Hong Kong not everyone get to see. We knew that the hike would be exciting and of course, rewarding.
You shouldn’t be faulted if you think that hiking and Hong Kong are never to be associated together. After all, Hong Kong is one of the most modern and urbanized cities not only in Asia, but, in the world. High rise buildings and impressive skyscrapers are what Hong Kong is to the rest of the world, but, truth be told, almost two thirds of its geographical area is far from modernity. Hiking may not be a popular activity for tourists, but, it is something they’re missing out.
