Rising 957 metres above sea level, the frequently cloud-covered Tai Mo Shan is Hong Kong’s highest peak and is visible from many parts of the city. Despite its elevation, Tai Mo Shan is accessible by foot, with several hiking trails meandering around the summit. Climb up for panoramic views, a sea of clouds, winter frosts, and colourful seasonal blooms of flowers.
If you are lucky, you might see a sea of clouds from the mountaintop in spring. Such phenomenon usually occurs just after rain.
There are eateries at the Tai Mo Shan Country Park car park and Visitor Centre.
From MTR Tsuen Wan Station Exit A, walk to the bus stop on Tai Ho Road North. Take bus 51 to the Country Park stop. The entrance of the country park is on Tai Mo Shan Road.
Return by the way you came to the Country Park bus stop. Take bus 51 to MTR Tsuen Wan Station, where multiple modes of transportation offer access to the rest of the city.
