Ark Eden in Mui Wo

We've been to Mui Wo several times in the past, but we've never been to Ark Eden. This is an outdoor camp, in the mountains of Lantau. Actually, not sure if I should call it a camp - it is much more than that. The team running it does much more than taking out city… Continue reading Ark Eden in Mui Wo

MoonTrekker 2012 test hike: Full 26km

Another Saturday and another test hike for the Moontrekker event to familarise myself with the hike. This time the MeetUp group planned to do the moonlit route, the full 26km from Mui Wo to the Lantau Peak. We met at Mui Wo ferry pier at 8.30 - and despite the hot temperatures and sunshine, a… Continue reading MoonTrekker 2012 test hike: Full 26km
