Bird watching, photography and nature hikes throughout Hong Kong

The weather has been getting finer this past week and I find myself getting the urge to take a nice hike somewhere in Hong Kong. Mind you, I tend to get this sudden desire every few months but never seem to go beyond Dragon’s Back trail in Shek O (pictured above). The reason for this is that I don’t really know where to go to take these walks. I only know of the ones that I went on with my family as a child and don’t really remember much about them. This brings me to my post for the day: Walk Hong Kong.


Walk Hong Kong organizes a number of walks throughout the city, covering everything from urban and historical developments, to coastal views, hillsides and remote village tours. They even have bird watching tours and photography tours for the eager visitor.


Open since 2003 and run by two Hong Kong residents, Jackie Peers and Marco Foehn, Walk Hong Kong seems like a genuine way to experience the less crowded, less industrial and commercialized Hong Kong. It’s ideal for Western and European visitors, as their tours are conducted in English. They also provide German and French tours, if requested. If you’re looking to experience Hong Kong away from the busy metropolis, this is perfect for you. Hong Kong has some amazing hiking trails and you don’t have to be extremely physical to go on one.


As the heat of the summer sizzles away into fall, I suggest you consider going on a hiking trail with these experts if you’re in Hong Kong within the coming months. You’re sure to go home with an experience to remember.
