This manual will help you learn the skills you need to hike both on and off trail in Hong Kong. We believe that these skills need to be practiced until they become second nature and so each skill lesson comes with exercises. The exercises allow you to practice many of the skills in a safe environment before taking them into the wild.
If you are new to hiking, we recommend you begin with the basic skills before moving to the more advanced skills. We suggest that you:
- Do the maps reading skills first in the order given on the menu.
- Then do the compass reading skills next in the order given on the menu.

- Save the other navigation techniques and route planning lessons until you fully understand map and compass skills since these lessons require you to have a full knowledge of map and compass skills.
Each lesson for the map and compass skills lessons begins with simple principles and skills before moving to more advanced techniques. If are not aiming toward planning or leading hiking routes you may want to skip the more advanced techniques and move onto the next lessons. Needless to say, anyone who intends to plan or lead a hiking group should be fluent in all these skills.
NOTE: These lessons are not a substitute for experience. Novice hikers should always hike under the supervision of a trained and experienced hiker.
