Scrambling.hk is an online manual and guide for off-trail hiking in the Hong Kong region. Hong Kong has some of the best off-trail hiking within city limits in the world.
You can follow the routes we do week by week at this Flickr address:
If you want to join us, help out in anyway or just pass on some comments and ideas, please contact us here:
1) To make a complete catalogue of off-trail routes in the Hong Kong SAR area. This will include stream treks, coastal traverses and other off-trail / rough trail routes. We would like to link to other sites that have further information on these routes.
2) To build an on-line manual of knowledge and techniques for both off-trail and on-trail hiking in the Hong Kong SAR area.
3) To protect and clean up Hong Kong's countryside.
Next time you hike, please leave no trace - and remove the traces left by others.
