    Tourdescription About the audio tour

    This route is an alternative to riding the Peak Tram, a bus or taxi to Hong Kong's Peak neighborhood. It's just about the shortest possible distance, while sticking to safe and interesting pathways. We follow the tram tracks as far as Magazine Gap Road, then make our way over to Old Peak Road to complete the ascent.

    Tips Tips

    Places to stop along the way:

    There's a grocery store near the starting point (fusion by Park'n'Shop) if you need provisions, as well as a few park benches if you need a rest on the hill.

    When the queue is just too long...


    Hong Kong can be very hot and humid. Although this route is only 2.5km (~1.5 miles) it rises 400m (~1,300') in elevation. Be sure you're ready for a hike. Also, be sure to check the weather before you leave. If it starts raining, when you're halfway up, there's no convenience store, nearby, to buy an umbrella.
