2.2 Miles Total - 1811 ft gain - Loop Trail

Originally added by Tiffany Young

Get your steps in for the day with a little dose of nature and skyscraper views on the highest mountain on Hong Kong Island!

Whether you're taking the bus or tram (or even walking) up to the peak - get excited for some serious elevation gain at 554 meters!

Victoria Peak is an iconic spot in Hong Kong for visitors to see from above, but also the spot for fitness junkies to get in a workout at the park and run a couple of loops.

Once you get to the top of the peak, the trail wraps around the the entire mountain and gives you amazing views of the city from all angles!

The Peak has a lot of history. Be sure to look out for signs along the path and read about the history of constructions, plants, etc if you're interested about the very spot you're standing on!

Public transportation is paid by the distance and it is highly recommended to get an Octopus Card

Directions:

  • On the MTR take the blue line towards Kennedy Town and get off at the Admiralty Station and take exit B out.
  • Walk to Admiralty Garden; Queensway and take bus number 15 to The Peak and get off at the Peak Bus Terminus.
