Cheung Tsui Food Supply / Care Action Cup 樂善盃

Care Action Cup Charity Hiking, 12 December 2010, is to raise fund for helping those needy in Qinghai Province and Jiangxi Province in the Mainland China. This is Check Point 2 - CP2 Cheung Tsui.

This Food Supply, located at Cheung Tsui of Sai Kung Peninsula, operated on 12 December 2010. Cheung Tsui is the Second Check Point. Foods, namely noodles and congee, are served to hikers at free. In order to serve and offer foods to hikers , volunteered helpers have to stay in Cheung Tsui for three days, for all preparation and works before, during and after the charity hiking.

'Macaroni w/ Pork and Dried Vegetable in Soup' is like water in a desert. When we have hiked for three hours, this bowl of macaroni is already good enough. Very minimum amount of msg has been added, if any. It is not salty and the taste is within our expectation. But we appreciate very much.

'Congee of Pork and Dried Vegetable' is served in such a convenient way.

To me, it is a delicious congee. After drinking the congee and taking a very short break, most hikers continue to hike, in order to finish the whole route in the shortest possible time.

It is the first time to join this hiking organized by Care Action. After the steepest and most difficult hill in Hong Kong – Sharp Peak (Nam She Tsui), it takes roughly one hour to hike to Cheung Tsui. It is already lunchtime, and not expected that noodles and congees are served. Though there is no need to comment on the taste and quality, it is within our expectation and we must send our greatest appreciation to all volunteered helpers. They spend totally three days for the set-up, preparation of foods, cleaning and removal. The fund raised is to help the needy in the Mainland China.

If you want to join, you should click the link in the above and mark down the enrolment date for the charity hiking in 2011. It is not a must to finish thirty miles. There are two other options of easier and shorter route.

Care Action Cup 樂善盃
Care Action Cup Charity Hiking is organized by a non-profit making organization - Care Action (www.CAREACTION.org.hk). This is its largest fund-raising function of the year. There are about four thousands participants. The fund is to build new schools at places with extreme worst conditions in Qing Hai Province and Jiang Xi Province of the Mainland China.

In the route of 30 kilometers, it is in fact a hiking in a loop-shaped route in Sai Kung Peninsula. There are totally five Check Points (CPs), namely CP1 Sharp Peak (Nam She Tsim 蚺蛇尖), CP2 Cheung Tsui (長 咀), CP3 Ham Tin (咸田), CP4 Sai Wan Ting (Sai​​ Wan Pavilion 西灣亭), and CP5 Man Yee Au (萬宜凹). Both the Start and the Finish are Pak Tam Chung Park. It is expected to be finished in eleven hours, at most.

The weather is mild and comfortable. Temperature is about twenty degree celsius. The Charity Hiking starts at 09:00.

Since there are many participants, for some narrow trails, we have to queue up in such a way, like the children in kindergarten.

It takes about one hour to Chek Keng Ferry Pier.

Immediately, we are heading to the steepest and most difficult check point - Sharp Peak (Nam She Tsim). For beginners and those who have no confidence in his / her own ability, it is better not to go up.

This is Sharp Peak (Nam She Tsim). We can see the trail on the hill. Hiking stick would help a bit to alleviate energy consumption of the feet.

We are concentrating on our own hike.

There are quite a lot of loose rocks on this part of Sharp Peak (Nam She Tsui). Extra care is a must.

It seems that it is getting steeper and steeper. For some portions, climbing is needed. Hiking dressing (like shoes, trousers, backpack and glove) would help a lot.

Everybody hike on his / her own pace. It should be the steepest and most difficult hill in Hong Kong (in view of hiking).

This slope should have an elevation of 60 degree.

From Sharp Peak, it is a good spot to overlook Tai Wan and Ham Tin Wan. There is no sunray today and the sky is quite misty. It is therefore not easy to focus on Tai Wan and Ham Tin Wan only.

We have reached the top of Sharp Peak (Nam She Tsui). This is the turning point to walk down the hill. Some hikers would have a short rest here.

To walk down the hill is also not a too easy task, as the trail is quite slippery. We are heading to the second Check Point (CP2) - Cheung Tsui.

It is this Check Point that noodle and congee are served to hikers. Volunteered helpers move all materials by sea before the charity hiking to this Check Point. Totally they would spend three days here for all preparation and removal works.

In less than five minutes after the recharge, most hikers would continue the route, in order to have a better personal record. It is for sure an exhausting and fatiguing hike from Sharp Peak to Cheung Tsui. It is an unexpected long route.

Tai Wan is a fascinating beach.

This is the third Check Point (CP3) - Ham Tin Wan. In Autumn, it should be a nice place for camping.

Difficult route starts again.

We have to climb up and climb down.

At the last Check Point (Sai​​ Wan Ting), it is already 17:15. Hikers of less than five percent are still on the way. It takes eight hours and forty minutes for me to finish the whole route. It is of course not a good record. Besides, as far as I know, two to three hikers have to be sent to hospital by helicopter, as they hurt the tendon on the foot.

Different words or figures would be chopped on the number plate in each Check Point.

After collecting five different chops, this Care Action gold-colored badge would be awarded.
