Pink Dolphin spotting and hike Sat 14th August
- This is a delightful hike to a stunning falls.
Meet at Tung Chung Deli France at 9am.
Don't be late as the ferry will wait for no man or beast or Bill
We walk over to the TC ferry pier to catch the 9.25 first ferry of the day
to Tai O.
Should be a good chance of spotting some pink dolphins, we saw 3 last

for much of the path so a stick or umbrella is helpful to tap out the edge
of the path.
After 30 minutes or so we will reach the lower part of the falls. The plan
is to follow the path up to the upper levels.
Last Sunday, the river walkers were there, all 50 of them....hopefully they

After paying respects to the mermaids we will come back down to the main
path and back into Tai O for
num nums and then catch the 4.20 ferry back to Tung Chung or some can take
the bus if they wish.
The vegetation is lovely at this time of year, also lots of large spiders
around so beware.
Whole day hike, hot weather expected, bring sun block, glasses, mosi spray,
hat, water, walking stick or umbrella,
swimmers, towel. A snack to eat at the waterfalls and chocolate for the
In the event of rain we may cancel, call me on the morning if unsure
