Walking in Mount Butler

Here is my recommendation for something to do this weekend.

I went on a walk around Mount Butler last weekend and here are some photographs by way of introduction.

The route is fairly steep so you do get a bit of a workout (well, at least for a non regular hiker like me.)

Start your walk from the bus 11 stop just before Boyce Road on Moorsom Road in Jardine’s Lookout. Walk up theHK Harbour view stairs towards the 聖公會 kindergarten. At the top of the stairs, keep walking uphill……………….

You can either head up to the top of the hill to the Bomb Disposal Depot or you could head to Braemar Hill (North Point). Bomb disposal depot The view from the top is quite good, you can see all the way to the Harbour and over to Kowloon.

In any case, do take your time to enjoy the flora and fauna. Look at these beautiful blooms. I was early enough to still catch the morning dew on the flowers.

Here you can see a some ants busy stiching some leaves together to make a next. Simply amazing!

This is a picture of a little creek, not enough for fish but nevertheless, a refreshing sight.
