Trip Report - Ha Ling Peak

We wanted a quick and easy day of scrambling yesterday, so decided on a tourist hike up Ha Ling Peak, previously known as the politically incorrect Chinaman's Peak. I guess you could say I was putting the Chinaman back into Chinaman's Peak. :)

Anita was really NOT feeling it (it was like trying to wake a slumbering bear this morning), and she was yawning throughout the hike, but despite this, we summited in a personal best time together. So our early season training is working.

Tired and grumpy. The Missus is clearly not impressed today.

The final ascent up to the summit is steep and rocky.

How you know it's a tourist hike: it's like a full parking lot at the summit.

  1. That reminded me my latest visit to northern areas of Pakistan, we had really good time where by hiking on peaks and watching such breath taking locations. Good post
