Sai Kung country beach
I met up with the group that would be hiking overnight with me to Sai Kung Country Beach. It took us a total of 2.5 hours to reach the trail. Then, another 2 hours to the beach. The trail wasn't as hard as Lion's Rock, but it was still difficult due to the humidity.
The first significant find we came across on the trail was an abandoned village on the edge of a bay.
Once we hiked through the village, we finally saw the top of the peak we had to climb. The half way point was near.
We finally reach the beach. What a site...
Sai Kung Country Beach
As the sun was going down, we made a fire. We had previously ate at a small restaurant at the beach.
With no sleeping bags or tent, we had to bury ourselves in sand to escape the mosquitos. I can say I didn't sleep at all that night.
What a miserable night. I was eaten alive by mosquitos, there was no food or water and there was no way to hike back at night. It was safe to say we didn't prepare well for the overnight hike.
However, once the sun came up, everything was forgotten. These sites made up for the sleepless night.
The hike back to Hong Kong Island.
