This peak offers amazing views and far less crowds than the popular Victoria peak. You can do both the peaks in one day as they are on top of the same mountain and don’t take long to get to between each other.

High west peak is definitely worth the trek up the hill. The view is probably better than Victoria peak. There are not many people at the top which is quite nice to enjoy the view and atmosphere.

For the complete Peak experience without the tourist traps, ride up on Bus # 15, and start the hike at Lugard road, with its numerous overlooks - then hike up to High West at the intersection with Hatton and Harlech. There are many steep steps,...More

Awesome is a much used adjective but in this case it fits perfectly. The climb, many steps, was challenging for me, (56yrs reasonably fit but not used to inclines). The views are 360degrees over Hong Kong and, if you have a clear day truly are...More

I went up there from the stairs side, quite easy and at the top the view is nice. Although the sky isn't quite clear recently, it's recommended to go this trail if you want to enjoy a nice view without much effort.

This place is a gem amidst the maddening crowd of HK, and I'd probably start to consider serious hiking in HK in the future because of this peak. It was an accidental "trekking" while the group made it up to the Peak at about 4pm....More

This is somewhat of the beaten track so you will find mostly hikers and runners but in my opinion offers the best views of Hong Kong. It's not very well signposted but if you turn left at the pavilion off the morning trail at the...More

Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies
with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The
area widely known as Central is the major financial
hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up
to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open
late into the night and there just happens to be a
street party every weekend. Although everything seems
to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of
