Standing 532 metres tall, Mount Parker dominates the eastern half of Hong Kong. In fact, it is only slightly shorter than its more famous counterpart, Victoria Peak. Unlike The Peak, however, a hike up this mountain will lead you to historic treasures instead of exclusive residences. Walk along the Wilson Trail and you will come across the Wartime Cooking Stoves, large outdoor kitchens built in preparation of feeding the people of Hong Kong during World War II. Not far away is the Woodside Biodiversity Education Centre, whose exhibitions on Hong Kong's flora and fauna are housed inside a 1920s mansion built by the Taikoo Sugar company.
