Kayak & Hike! Kei Ling Ha to Sharp Peak & return (2 day camping trip)

A paddle to start the 2013 year. In fact, 2 great trips in one.

A camping trip for some and a one way trip for others. (See Saturday or Sunday calendar)

Day 1 - Saturday

From Kei Ling Ha we will paddle the Tolo Channel to one of my new favourite locations, the Ho Hai Wan Marine Park for lunch. We will also visit Grass Island and a short hike or at least visit to the local fishing village. A great place to stretch our legs. From there we will head over to a new camp site we have found with a great sunrise and view of Sharp Peak.

For the people heading home, this is the end of the trip. A short hike back to Ko Lau Wah (10 minutes) takes you to the ferry to Wong Shek Pier and civilisation. For those of us camping the night, a chilled evening beside a camp fire drinking mulled wine. Fantastic.

Day 2- Sunday

Starts with an early morning hike, either to Nam She Wan or Sharp Peak, depending on your level of fitness and commitment. Either way, you will have seen a glorious sunrise from the top of the saddle behind our camp.

We return to camp to meet the new arrivals who have journeyed to join us for the return paddle via a different route to yesterday, back to Kei Ling Ha.

THINGS TO CONSIDER & PREPARE. Overnight campers.

I have enough camping gear for everyone (tents & sleeping mats) but you will need your own sleeping bag. Bring a plate, cup, knife and fork. You will need 2 lunches, 2 water bottles and 2 small dry bags.Maximum 15 litre dry bags so they fit in the kayaks. I will take the cooking gear so you won't need to take any. Bring plenty of snacks too. And any drinks (alcohol or otherwise) that you may want for around the camp fire. There are no shops where we are going so you have to bring everything.

The evening meal will be something simple and filling depending on who is coming - do we get some vegetarians etc. Breakfast I will have porridge for the brave but if you want other stuff (bacon, eggs etc) bring it along.

The evening will be cool so bring a fleece and long pants to wear at the camp site. If you are going to climb Sharp peak, some good shoes for the hike too.

This will be a big weekend so don't volunteer if you don't have the stamina.

2013 - bring it on!!

    Phew! Big trip. New campsite was brilliant and sheltered. Kayaking was excellent, still discovering new places in Hong Kong. Lunch on Port Island was entertaining although cheeseless. Great trip
