Dapeng hikers told to register online
    2017-September-5  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

HIKERS who use the coastal trail between Dongchong beach and Xichong beach on the Dapeng Peninsula, one of the eight most beautiful coastlines in China, are required to register before hiking with the Dapeng tourism authority on its official public WeChat account, “大鹏文旅通,” starting Saturday.

The tourism administration has set a daily limit of 2,100 hikers. Nan’ao Subdistrict and the local communities in Dapeng New Area will set up service stations at the trailheads on the two beaches to check for registration, offer safety tips and serve as environmental volunteer stations.

People intending to hike the trail need to register the time they will hike, the number of people, their ages and health conditions, and whether they have a guide. Hiking alone will be prohibited, according to a news conference of the Dapeng tourism administration.

Dapeng has rich resources for outdoor activities, but outdoor safety incidents have kept rising in recent years.

Statistics showed Dapeng police and the border control department received 94 requests for help and rescued a total of 430 people including 72 requiring mountain rescues.

On July 16, Nan’ao Subdistrict Office received calls from two high-school students who had lost their way while hiking on Qiniang Mt. One of them was injured.

“Dayan Peak is rarely visited and even experienced hikers can lose their way at night. Phone signal is very weak in deep and remote valleys,” said Zhou Weiye, deputy chief of the Firefighting Unit of the Nan’ao Subdistrict Office. The two high-school students were later found on the morning of July 17.

There are 14 recognized country trails of varying degrees of difficulty on Dapeng Peninsula. The Dapeng Ancient Trail and Yangmeikeng stream trail for leisure, and standard trails from Xigong to Banyuntian, Libishan to Xichong and Dongchong to Xichong have been opened to the public. Five challenging trails and four science research trails remain closed to the public at present.

The online registration system was made with the guidance of Dapeng Outdoor Sports Whitebook, which was launched in July.

The book regulates outdoor sports in Dapeng by categorizing different natural resources and grading types of sports. It provides a guide for the marketization and industrialization of outdoor sports and sets an example for outdoor activities in China by promoting a replicable and pragmatic Tourism Plus Outdoor business model for the Dapeng Peninsula.

The book divides Dapeng’s natural resources into four use categories, including mountaineering, marine sports, aviation and greenway sports.

Mountaineering resources will be divided into different sections such as tourism, camping, hiking, exploring and core conservation areas.

The marine sports area will be divided into surfing, boating, fishing, yachting and coral protection areas. (Han Ximin)
