Distance: 1.8km (but you can carry on towards other paths/trails if you want)
I bet you haven’t heard of it. Well, at least I didn’t until last weekend when I decided I wanted to go for a walk but wanted nothing too long. Nowadays Hong Kong is too hot for anything strenuous. Still I wanted to get out of the city even just for half an hour, without having to take public transportation.
So what did I do? Go on Google Maps and found this:
I didn’t know what it was neither have I ever heard of it before. But it was near and I was running out of sunlight. So I made for it. We took the shortcut through the Hong Kong Zoological & Botanical Gardens (NOT Hong Kong Park) and found some very cute and active LEMURS (King Julien in Madagascar!!!) which are so fun to watch and definitely worth checking out btw.
Ring-tailed lemurs are also female dominant, a trait common among lemurs. To keep warm and reaffirm social bonds, groups will huddle together. The ring-tailed lemur will also sunbathe, sitting upright facing its underside, with its thinner white fur towards the sun.
Cute, cuddly, agile, and female-dominant? Love them already. My question is: Why did Walt Disney make a King Julien instead of a Queen Julien?!
Anyway, back on track. so we walked up Magazine Gap Road and tried to find this mysterious Path. It was really short (but branched out towards other paths, including the famous Bowen Road). Actually, the Dutch Path is like a wilder, overgrown Bowen Road with better views since it’s higher up.
Aaand that’s it! Thought I’d share 🙂
