Hailuogou Glacier

In the second episode in our Sichuan adventure, we hike up the Hailuogou valley. A walk on ice hiking up into Asia’s lowest glacier. An easy stroll in high altitude, a cable car ride and a hot spring to finish the day. Prayer flags, waterfalls, an epic glacier and the odd monkey all included.

Road to Moxi

In the first episode in our Sichuan adventure we travel from Chengdu to Moxi Zhen and into the Hai Luogou valley. A mega drive right into the heart of Western Sichuan. A beautiful alpine town surrounded by snow covered mountains plus a walk in Red Panda land. Raging rivers, posing monkey’s and bamboo bridges are all included.

Sections 1 & 2 of the Lantau Trail

In the first of a new series covering the much overlooked Lantau Long Trail we take on sections one and two. Sections one is a simple road walk from Mui Wo up to Nam Shan. Here you leave the road and start a long climb up to Sunset peak on section two before descending down to the Tung Chung road.

The 70 km Lantau trail takes you on a loop from Mui Wo West over Sunset and Lantau peaks before a ridge walk to Tai O. From there you follow the coast around the south of the island back to Mui Wo.

Plover Cove

In the last of five recommended Hong Kong walks we a hike 13 KM loop, starting at the Bride’s pool, making our way to Sam A Wan before crossing over to the old Hakka village of Lai Chi Wo. On the way back we climb the Tiu Tang Lung path before cutting back and returning to the the Bride’s pool. Thanks to Jurgen Looman for the recommendation and for coming along to show us the way and help us film.

Shengshan Island

This episode of Drone and Phone will take us to Shengshan Island of Zhoushan. We will together probe into an eerie abandoned village under trees and vines, the formidable and uncanny artwork of nature, and experience the easternmost inhabited island of Zhejiang Province.
