Takeoff Area:
起飛區:

The Ridge is quite long and can produce good flying conditions and great views. Thermic and Soaring can be experienced here. Cloudy Hill is a challenging Thermal site for S winds. The site is to the north of the territory near Tai Po with a Southerly aspect. To the East of the Take Off is the Pat Sin Range which is reachable from the Take Off if you can gain sufficient height for the initial glide.The Take Off on east side of Pat Sin is on a sloping grassy surface.

八仙嶺山脊很長,它的地形多樣,可以產生良好的飛行條件。八仙嶺起飛處位於傾斜的草皮表面上,九龍坑山起飛處是極具挑戰性的偏南風場地,而且沒有降落地方。九龍坑山東面是八仙嶺範圍,如果您能夠獲得足夠的高度可以進行滑行至八仙嶺。

Walk up the Road to the start of the Trail

This is the Trail Entrance

This is another option to walk up

This is the Start of the Hard Bit

This is a very demanding hiking trail. In the summer with 30+ deg heat the trail is sheltered from the wind so there is no relief with any breeze. Please bring sufficient drinking water. 
這是一條難度非常高的遠足徑。在炎熱超過30度的夏天,小徑樹遮蔽了,因此沒有風。請帶上足夠的飲用水。
