Hiking is a popular among Hongkongers in order to escape from urban jungle and enjoy natural scenery

A new series of Hiking Scheme videos will be made available by the Leisure and Cultural Department (LCSD). 

44 hiking routes will feature various levels of difficulty across the city. The scheme hopes to promote hiking and a culture of exercise for families to do on a regular basis.

The Hiking Scheme is part of the thematic activities that the Healthy Exercise for All Campaign collaborated with the LCSD and the Department of Health.

Moreover, the LCSD has created a website for the Hiking Scheme, which includes videos for the public to enjoy (www.lcsd.gov.hk/en/healthy/hiking/index.html).

These updated videos will include relevant information with improved video quality.

They include: “Ma On Shan – Ngong Ping – Tai Shui Hang”, “Devil’s Peak – Tseng Lan Shue”, “To Tei Wan – Big Wave Bay”, “Lau Shui Heung – Tai Po Tau”, “Braemar Hill – Tai Tam Tuk Reservoir”, “Hok Tau – Fung Yuen.”

Other information presented will also highlight transportation guides, hiking routes across sections, route lengths, duration, and levels of difficulty.

Moreover, the videos will feature attractions, historical backgrounds, and hiking points.

While hiking is beneficial to both body and mind, the LCSD reminds the public about safety first. Hikers should take routes wisely and to not overdo themselves.

Other suggestions that hikers should keep in mind include weather, their physical capabilities, having someone to hike with them, and bringing the proper gear.
