The Peak Tram_Victoria Peak

1. Ride up Hong Kong Island’s tallest mountain on THE PEAK TRAM at VICTORIA PEAK

The view from Victoria Peak can’t be topped, for sure, but the journey up Hong Kong Island’s tallest mountain comes really close! Start your ascent from The Peak Tram in Central near St. John’s Cathedral, and try to maintain your composure as you drift over magical scenery in a vast forestland. Once you reach the top, saunter through Victoria Peak Garden at Mountain Lodge, the governor’s former summer residence, or take in a view of Victoria Harbour from Lugard and Harlech roads. To learn more about the tram, stop by The Peak Tram Historical Gallery, and grab souvenirs at Peak Tower and Peak Galleria.

Trekker tip: Hike up to Victoria Peak via Old Peak Road, or encircle the entire mountain on The Peak Circle Walk along Lugard Road and Harlech Road. Both treks begin at Peak Tower.
