KEMBALI MEETING DETAILS
Honouring the Meeting Time:
Please know we have a 10mins allowance for waiting time. In order to honour those who have arrived on time. Unfortunately, we will not be able to coordinate with latecomers once we have started our walk.
Entrance of Tai Tam Country Park (South) on Tai Tam Road. Please meet us by the gate barriers by the side of the public toilets. Please refer to map below for reference
We will first walk along the paved trail of Tai Tam countrypark. The trail will make a turn and part of the trail will be moving through fairly dense forest with uneven ground. The last section of the walk will be along a river gorge where participants will be walking along the edge of a river, with some potential of rock hopping. The walk is mostly flat, and accessible for those with moderate fitness, though good balance is required.
What should I bring to the walk?
Water bottle, 1.5litres
Hat, sunscreen, mosquito repellent
Comfortable clothing, suitable for outdoors and sitting on the floor.
Suggest long trousers to protect from insect bites
Comfortable walking shoes
*A mat, or camping chair. The ground at the location of the walk is quite rocky at certain parts, please bring a yoga mat or something similar to sit on for extra comfort.
*You are welcome to bring your camera. However, we do encourage people to leave digital devices behind during the 3 hour walk.

Will there be toilets there?
There will be a public toilet at the meeting point to the start of the walk on Tai Tam Road.
Will there be food provided?
Snacks will be provided by the organiser. However, we recommend you have a hearty breakfast, and bring whatever you need to keep comfortable before we end at noon. Please do let us know if you have any dietary requirements, or food allergies.
I'm not very fit, does this matter?
The Forest Therapy Walk is designed to slow us down, tune into our senses, and the environment. The pace of the Forest Therapy walk will therefore be very slow, and suitable for all levels of fitness. Once at the site, we will be walking among the forested area and along a riverside made up of rocky boulders. Care should be taken in walking through uneven terrain if participants are not used to these conditions.
Are my children allowed to come?
Kembali offers programmes and workshops specifically for families and children, please contact us if you are interested in booking a family event. For this event, the minimum age is 14yrs.
