Choose a hiking trail that
is safe and suitable for you


Research on the trail


Study your destination and the route information in advance, such as distance of the route, road condition, difficulty, level of shade, time needed, etc.


Hike with friends


Avoid hiking alone. Always have a companion.


Do not overexert
your physical limits


Choose hiking routes based on your physical strength. Do not attempt to challenge yourself by taking difficult routes. Choose routes that you find yourself and your companions can handle.


Informing in advance


Inform your family or friends about your hiking trip in advance, so that they can seek help or call the police in case of accident.


'Enjoy Hiking'
Mobile App


Use the GPS Hiker Tracking Service in the “Enjoy Hiking” app, which could facilitate rescue if need arises


Follow the route


Do not deviate from existing hiking trails. Not only can accidents be avoided, but impacts to wild habitats can also be minimized.


Pay attention to weather condition


Before your trip


Check the weather forecast when planning your trip. Avoid intense or long-distance hiking in hot weather.


Keep an eye
on weather


Always pay attention to changes of weather condition on the day of hiking and during your trip to avoid accidents caused by unexpected weather.


Beware of
sudden high tides


When visiting inshore areas or seaside, including beaches, mudflats, etc., always pay attention to the rise and fall of the tide to avoid danger caused by rising water levels


What to Wear


Air permeable long-sleeved shirt is preferred. If you choose to wear short-sleeved shirt, put on a pair of arm sleeves to avoid sunburn

Reducing waste at source
and environmental protection


Reusing utensils


Bring your own food or drinks in resuable containers. For example, use water bottles / water bags, etc. to contain water or drinks. Refill water at water filling station if necessary: Water Filling Stations in Country Parks


Treating food
waste at home


Pre-treat your food at home and put them in reusable food containers. Recycle or treat waste at home in advance to minimize the amount of waste / fruit peels that you would bring to the countryside


Keeping your
face mask properly


Use a face mask holder or storage case to keep your face mask. Do not just randomly hang it on your backpack
