Safty Code for Visiting Geopark

1.Avoid visiting places with the potential risk of falling rocks, which may cause serious injury or death.

2.Be alert to changes in the surrounding environment and any potential hazards, such as rapids, cliffs or steep slopes. Exercise extra caution when rock surfaces are wet.

3.Do not climb the rock columns or walk on severely weathered or eroded surfaces. Watch out for shifting or slippery rocks.

4.Pay special attention to, and comply with, all warning signs in the geosite.

5.Wear suitable hiking shoes, hats and clothes. Also take enough water, food, gloves, first-aid kits and weather-proof clothes with you.

6.Mobile phone coverage may vary from place to place. Leave details of your route and expected return time with someone who can raise the alarm if necessary.

7.Use only tour guides who have outdoor training and first-aid skills.

8.Use only boat operators who comply with all the safety requirements including having life jackets for all passengers.

9.Do not take away any rock, fossil, mineral or silt. It is an offence to dig up, damage or deface any rocks in Hong Kong.

10.Keep the countryside clean. Generate as little waste as possible and take it with you out of the geopark.

11.Camping, including tent-camping, is permitted only in designated camp sites.
