Peak to South Hiking Tour

Victoria Peak, Pok Fu Lam Country Park, Hong Kong Island

Meeting up in Central, the city centre, we share with you the history of Hong Kong as we walk across the spectacular and vibrant central business district with its soaring towers of glass and steel.

The unique Peak Tram funicular railway slowly ascends to its summit of 373 metres – time to marvel at this feat of engineering and at the views of Hong Kong city and Victoria Harbour unfolding below. Victoria Harbour is classed as one of the world’s best natural harbors, the importance for Hong Kong being it is a natural wind break.

Our walk takes us along the first section of the 50km long Hong Kong Trail. Here beneath the Victoria Peak (552 meters) the hectic falls off, a wilder, quieter side of Hong Kong Island presents itself. Victoria Peak was also known as Tai Ping Shan, a mountain of great peace. We see old banyan trees and admire the distant views to the north, taking in Kowloon Peninsula and the New Territories, and as we walk around the mountain to the south we see Lantau, Lamma and Cheung Chau islands nestled in the South China Sea.

Our shaded walk leads us through Pok Fu Lam Country Park, with its lush emerald green forests and climbing plants, and in it the first of Hong Kong’s water reservoirs, completed in 1863. From here we walk down to Pok Fu Lam Road and return to Hong Kong Central by bus, or you can continue your journey and visit the colorful quayside of Aberdeen, where you might like to take a sampan ride around the harbor.
