We hiked up and down Junk Peak near Sai Kung on Saturday. It looked scary enough when I saw it from a distance. At first, I thought we were not going to climb up, but simply skirt it around the foot of the mountain.
At the foot of Junk Peak, however, my friends decided to climb up. I knew I would have a problem, with my height-induced vertigo. But I decided to give it a go. I told myself I would look straight ahead and up. And if necessary, I would just close my eyes.
Surely, climbing up was not too bad. I did look over the sides, but only when I was crouched down safely on the rocks. And the scenery was really worth it (will post the photos later).
