Geocachers In Hong Kong

Recommended Posts

I don't know about geocachers in Hong Kong but I do know about a starting TB Race over there.

 

In the following cache 16 TB from Belgium are wating for a trip back to Europe. Mine,Big Bird Merel is one of them.

 

Feel free to go to Tram Peak and free them ( or at least mine :surprise: ).

 

The race page on the Belgian site ( www.geocaching.be ) is in preparation.

Hi Hong Kong geocachers!

I am headed for Hong Kong, first half of December. I am looking forward to log some of the many peak and scenery caches, but I also have a wish: A new urban cache, or maybe a couple. I was so sorry to see Kowloon II go missing.

 

Regards

M.M.

Howdy all...I'll be visiting HK for about 4 days early next month. This will be my first experience with geocahing outside the U.S. I've got the queary download from geocaching.com, is there anything else that I will need? I imagine I will pick up a paper map when I get there, and I'll be on foot, so hopefully there are some caches close to where I'll be staying. If any one in the area would like to get together and do some caching let me know and I'll see if we can meet up.

Thanks Tadpole. I'll arrive in Hong Kong next week, and I'm looking forward to caching there. This will be my first caching experience outside the U.S.

I can't find the "edit" button for my previous post so I need to post a correction here:

 

The correct coordinate for Spot Height 869 of Sunset Peak at Lantau Island at the South West of the map should be 22Deg15.419Min N 113deg57.161min E
