Weekly Photo Challenge: Rise/Set

 Tai O hiking trail views

Hong Kong. September 2017

I wouldn’t say this is my favourite photo of a sun set or sun rise, but it’s one that was memorable to catch because we were in the midst of hiking for four hours on the Tai O hiking route in Hong Kong when this happened!

The view was spectacular as the path was right up against the shoreline and ragged rocks.  We actually had to be really careful when walking because there were so many big rocks and uneven steps.  One big wrong step and you would have landed down into the water (or at least roughed up in the bushes).  Either way, it wouldn’t have been pretty (unlike this view, ha).

The view was also close to theHong Kong International Airport so if you look closely, you can see the silhouette of a plane in the lightest part of the clouds there.

    I heard Hong Kong has a lot of variation of hiking trail… it would be nice to visit there someday and try those trails 😍

      It really is! Hong Kong definitely is a great place for hiking! 🙂 I recommend October to November as the best months to visit since it won’t be as hot or humid as the summer months.
