Safety Guidelines for Visiting Hong Kong Geopark

The geosites are located mostly in the countryside, so prepare yourself well for visiting a natural environment. Always be aware of outside conditions and be self-sufficient.

Before Setting Off

  1. Check out the Hong Kong Geopark website and brochure before planning your trip.
  2. Check the weather forecast. Do not visit the geopark during bad weather.
  3. Prepare suitable clothing, with sun protection or rain gear.
    Inform family members of your itinerary. Avoid hiking alone.
  4. Bring communication devices, and ample drinking water and food.

Sightseeing Rules

  1. Do not deface anything in the geopark with graffiti, or damage or take away any rocks.
  2. Do not disturb or harm wildlife.
  3. Do not wander off the recommended sightseeing routes.
  4. Some islands and coastal areas have no visitor facilities. They should be observed from a boat. Avoid getting ashore or visiting them when there are strong easterly winds.
  5. Don't hike near cliffs in order to prevent injuries from rock falls.
  6. Don't climb on outcrops, slopes or rocky coasts in order to prevent accidents.
  7. Respect the geopark communities and their heritage.
  8. Camp only at designated sites.
  9. Note the safety warning signs at geo-attractions.
  10. Stay alert to weather and environmental changes.
  11. Take your litter home.

Please see the Country Park Hiking Safety Guidelines for details.
