About The Event

Hong Kong Youth Hostels Association (HKYHA) organises the annual fundraising event Ngong Ping Charity Walk (NPCW) since 2007! It will not only allow participants to appreciate the beautiful natural scenery of Lantau Island, but also encourage environmental protection and raise funds for HKYHA to support our missions.

Founded in 1973, Hong Kong Youth Hostels Association (HKYHA) is a registered non-profit organisation that aims to provide travellers with safe, comfortable and friendly accommodations at an affordable price, while promoting multicultural exchange and arousing public awareness for the care of nature. HKYHA also builds exchange platforms through youth hostels to encourage young people to learn new cultures and explore the world.

The fund raised from NPCW will be used to support our current services, which include providing quality hostel services and carrying out youth programs. We rely on your support to fund our operations and improvements. Your generous donation will support our efforts in promoting "cultural exchange", "physical and mental well-being" and "environmental protection".

We Believe
  • Travel does not only mean fun and entertainment, but also means breaking through limits and exploring the world.
  • Travel is not exclusive for the rich. Everyone can enjoy the satisfaction which travel brings about.
The Purpose
Provide safe and simple accommodation for travel lovers and young people of limited means.
Backpacking or self-guided tours have become a new mode of travel for the young generation. Youth hostels are thus an integral part of Hong Kong's tourism industry today.
