Chung Yeung Festival, also known as Autumn Remembrance or Qing Ming Festival, is a day to pay respects and remember ancestors. It is very popular ritual within the Chinese community in Hong Kong and a family tradition for many, traditional meaning “Going up the mountain”.
Also known as a day for hiking, families climb up the hills to visit the graves of their deceased ancestors, performing cleansing rites and usually followed with a picnic that includes sharing of chinese cakes known as Ko. It is believed that Ko, once eaten, would bring good health and prosperity in future.
