Lion Rock

Not everyone has the time or energy to walk all day. We put together ten great easy short walks in Hong Kong that can all be done in half a day.

This is a tough climb but very rewarding. Starting with a scramble up the side of Lion Rock this is the short way to the top but involves some simple rock climbing in places. It’s a great short adventure but you have to be very careful on the way up. From the top take in the iconic views across Kowloon before taking a much easier path down and into Lion Rock Park.


Get to the start: From the Wong Tai Sin MTR minibus route 18M from the side street on Shatin Pass Road and get of at the Fat Chong Temple at the top before the bus takes a right.

Get home: From Lion Rock Park you can walk across to the MTR at Wong Tai Sin, or find one of many buses going that way along Lung Cheung Road.
