Violet Hill Path
Starting Point: Wong Nai Chung Reservoir
Finishing Point: Tai Tam Road
This hike, throughTai Tam Country Park, starts at Wong Nai Chung Reservoir. Across the dam wall, after going down a few steps and turning left, the trail begins to wind around Violet Hill. From this catchwater path one has lovely views over Deep Water Bay, Brick Hill and Wong Chuk Hang. Where the catchwater ends, a footpath continues on amidst woodland with wonderful sea views out across Repulse Bay

There are a number of excellent hiking groups in Hong Kong. Some have regular weeky hikes, others less so. In many cases the hikes are free, but check with the websites as some offer paid services.

If you haven`t hiked before, you should pay close attention to the details of each hike and the levels of difficulty. What is hard for one person isn`t for another, so decide based on your own situation. Check with hike leaders if you are unsure.

I hike with Roz`s Hiking Group each week, where I am one of the hike leaders, so maybe I`ll see you soon.

If you would like your website listing, just let me know.

I`ve been travelling to Hong Kong since 2001 and nowhere on earth has a place been so magical to me. From the culture, to the music and the wonderful people, this Asian paradise has a true place in my heart.

Hiking is one of the things so great about Hong Kong. Just a few minutes from hustle and pollution of the city is a peaceful and tranquil world of nature. This site helps to showcase this beautiful side of such a vibrant city and it`s my own personal tribute to Hong Kong.

I am enternally grateful to the webmasters of Enjoy Hiking for their useful information and insights into Hiking in Hong Kong. This site borrows resources from their site and is used with kind permission.

For the tech minded, this is a HTML5 responsive website which was designed and programmed by myself. It uses the web development framework Twitter Bootstrap, along with jQuery & Font Awesome. The backend uses PHP & MySQL with a custom caching system. I built it in a day when I needed a break from work related coding.

Thanks for reading. If you want to say hi, use the options on the contact tab.
