What people are saying about Hong Kong

My wonderful hiking trip ⛰ would not have been possible without Rory as my excellent guide to the ins and outs and the beautiful trails of the ⛰ complex. For those four hours we were jungle explorers of the Hong Kong hinterlands, befriending mock vipers and pregnant, -bellied salamanders . And enjoying the lush greenery and rich verdure of our wild and untamed surroundings, and we are warmly welcomed by the au naturale and cooly refreshung shower of waterfalls ️ offered by the wondrously beauteous works of nature ! It is at times tiring tho not exhaustingly so, but absolutely worth breaking a sweat for! One will most certainly gain a greater perspective on life after this simple yet great experience!

The tour guide was very nice.. he know lots of HK hiking trails..I was very enjoying hiking with him. I will definitely join him again next time.
