Huang Bore and the Yung Sheh Hiking Club

“The Yung Sheh Hiking Club, one of the earliest hiking bodies in Hong Kong, organized hiking every Sunday, only to be replaced in the summer by swimming at some remote spots. The meeting time and place, as a practice for decades, were published in the Wah Kiu Yat Po on Fridays. My father and I joined the Club in the 1950s. Back then, much of the natural environment was not yet usurped by the skyscrapers and there were a lot of hiking destinations to choose from. Thus, we had been to many remote hills and villages throughout Hong Kong, Kowloon, the New Territories and the outlying islands. Occasionally, we might even sleep over at monasteries or fishing boats.”
