I would like to do some sunset photos from Tai Mo Shan, and also try to do a lapse time.
But at first I want to start from Tai Po Road at the beginning, for monkey photo :-)
Then walk untill Shing Mun Reservoir, go to Needle Hill for a 360° panorama
Finnish by the climb till Tai Mo Shan.
Shing Mun Reservoir: 1pm
Needle Hill: 2:30pm
Tai Mo Shan: 5pm
How to go:
Join me at Lai Chi Kok MTR station at 10:30am to take bus n°72 or 86b
For alternative choice: to take bus n°51, you have to go to Tsuen Wan exit D, Warning they are only one bus every 30-40 min and it take 20-25 min to go to country park bus stop
total distance: 21km with 1300m gain elevation
For this photo-hike, you have to be fit, it's not so easy to walk with all camera gear in your backpack.
what to bring: camera, tripod, large range lens ( wide to long zoom), filter, etc ...
hiking shoes, water: at least 2 liters, light food, light jacket for the wait at Tai Mo Shan, headlamp/torch
Join us at Tai Mo Shan for the sunset: take the bus n°51 at Tsuen Wan MTR until stop26 Country Park, from there they are 1.5h-2h
