To The Peak

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.

You can not reach the very top of Hong Kong Island’s tallest peak but this walk gets you close. Starting at Victoria Peak Garden, make your way down to the lookout over Pok Fu Lam and out to Lamma Island. Then join the Governor’s walk down to Lugard Road and make your way around and back to the Peak Tower. The hike is short, mainly flat or downhill and has superb views over all of Hong Kong Island and beyond to Kowloon. The views along Lugard road are in our mind one of the best vantage points in Hong Kong so bring a camera.


Get to the start: Bus 15 or the Peak Tram will get you from Central up to the Peak Tower. To get to the starting point on Mount Austin Road, you either need to walk up or take a taxi.

Get home: Bus 15 or the Peak Tram will get you back down to Central. There is also a minibus to Aberdeen.
