The Peak 3.0 rating


Take the Peak Tram, a train line going to one of the highest points on Hong Kong island for a great view of the natural landscape in stark contrast with the city (if it is not too cloudy or polluted). The tram also makes a few stops, so it is possible to go half-way and hike the winding roads on the sloping geography. Victoria Peak was once the place the rich were carried in their sedan chairs to escape the summer heat. Since 1888 the Peak Tram has been carrying passengers. At the upper tram terminus is The Peak Tower and the Peak Galleria, both full of souvenir shops and overpriced restaurants with spectacular views. There are also some viewing galleries. For the best views and to get away from the crowds, there is a circluar walk along Tregunter Road and Harlech Road. From Lugard Road there are views of the skyscrapers of Central and Victoria Harbour, from Harlech road, the views are of Lamma and other Outlying Islands. This takes around an hour. From Harlech Rd, you can hike into the Lung Fu Shan Country Park and explore the relicts of the last war.
