Pok Fu Lam to The Peak: taking it to the top

Peak Circle Walk

Average hiking time: About 2.5 hours | Distance: About 6 km | Difficulty: Easy

In no other major world city will a short walk take you from densely packed urban areas to stunning mountain-top trails. This relatively gentle hike from Pok Fu Lam highlights one of the unique advantages of Hong Kong, where the countryside is literally on the doorstep of one of the world’s great metropolises.

 

The walk takes you from the busy road that connects the west to the south of Hong Kong Island up to one of the world’s most desirable — and expensive — residential areas. Along the way you pass Pok Fu Lam Reservoir, the first ever reservoir constructed in Hong Kong, and head along pathways where you are more likely to encounter butterflies than people.

 

Spend some time on The Peak, where history mingles with modern-day tourist attractions, and revel in the amazing views over the city from the Lugard Road.

 

Finish your day by following the Lugard Road loop then taking the steps up to High West to enjoy more spectacular vistas and, if you get the timing right, an awe-inspiring sunset.

 

In just three short hours you will experience many different facets of life on Hong Kong Island.
