The site is in the Sai Kung country park. It involves a 45 minute strenuous hike. It has a Northerly facing ridge facing the sea with a valley in front which contains the landing field.
The Normal takeoff is in a bowl area and grass covered surface over mixed terrain initially which can give varied conditions until in the clear air.
There is reliable lift to the Left of Take Off above the rock cliff and all along the front depending upon the conditions.
THIS IS A DIFFICULT SITE WITH VERY LIMITED LANDING OPTIONS, SHOULD NOT BE TAKEN LIGHTLY
Top landings are possible, but with careful planning. There are rotor conditions rear of the takeoff.
The LZ is the small area in front of the ridge before the tree covered hills. It is to the Right of the road. Careful planning is needed. In strong wind conditions you may have trouble penetrating far enough to reach the field. The tree covered hill will produce turbulence also. The LZ has power lines near the road. Often there may be Cows on the field also.
Winds to look for on the HKO website are Tap Mun N force 2-4. Never fly in force 5 and above wind condition.
