There are six checkpoints along the Fjällräven Classic Hong Kong route – including the start and finish. You need to get your Trekking Pass stamped at each one and fill in the guest book with your checkpoint arrival time. In case of emergency and the officials have to leave the tent, the stamp will be placed outside the tent for you to stamp your Trekking Pass yourself.
Unlike Classic Sweden, you’re not free to camp anywhere. But you do have a choice of designated camping areas marked on your Classic Hong Kong map (included in the ticket price). Although we recommend Wan Tsai and Ham Tin Wan as ideal places to make camp.
We provide you with a trash bag to collect your non-human waste during the trek. And it’s vital that you use it. You’re not allowed, under any circumstances, to drop litter. If you do so, you will be disqualified. We want to keep the area pristine and free from rubbish. You leave the bag at the finish in Pak Tam Chung and we take care of the contents.
Human waste is another matter. This should not go in the rubbish bag. There are toilets along the route. But if nature calls when you’re far from a toilet, you should bury the faeces in the ground or cover them with stones. In addition, take your toilet paper with you.
You can abandon Fjällräven Classic Hong Kong at any time, but due to lack of roads, you’ll still have to walk back to the start or on to the finish. Please contact a checkpoint official or – if you have mobile phone reception – call the emergency number provided in your registration pack.
