    Anyone with average fitness should be fine with this route. Bring a stick to climb steps, if you have bad knees. The arrangement is superb. The lunch is good. The free time at the village is fun. The ferry ride is enjoyable. Would recommend this hike with no reserve.
  • Lai yin 13 Mar 2017
    I missed the outing because I thought we gathered at 8am and left. When the tourist guide called me at 9:15, I was on my way back home and was too late. I felt so disappointed. Can my fee be transferred to the next tour to the same place? Please I want to go and I joined at least 3 tours organized by your company already. Thank you.
  • Jui chun 13 Mar 2017
    The route is quite easy to walk, and it's really chill to watch the woods、bamboo and red stones...etc along the trail. Would definitely recommend people join this activity.
