HKAYP Silver Expedition – Lantau Island

January 16th-18th, 2020

35 Students and 9 Staff were involved in the HKAYP practice expedition to Lantau last weekend. We were lucky to have good weather and the students performed well in all the challenges they faced. On Thursday and Friday they walked challenging routes which tested their map-reading, teamwork and endurance skills. There were overnight camps at Ngong Ping after which all students climbed HK’s second highest peak Lantau (934m..just short of 1km high!) then one group headed over Sunset Peak too (869m) to camp at Nan Shan. Much of this involved students hiking by themselves with staff supervision at a distance. On the last day all students hiked round the Chi Ma Wan Peninsula and completed various challenges enroute. This included First Aid Compass Work and Team Building activities. Most groups completed between 45 to 55 km over the weekend. On Friday we were joined by two Bronze students who were on a catch up camp and they integrated well too.
