When it’s a rainy morning, it’s best to hike up the Victoria peak. And so we did just that, my Hiking Chicks and me.
How to get there: Take the MTR to Central and exit at J2 and keep following the Peak Tram sign and then walk up the Tramway Path.
Duration: 1.5 hour up and down the same way
Difficulty: 5/10 cause it’s all slope but a good workout
We kept walking up the slope then crossed the street to continue on the tram path.
Luckily there’s a loo on the way up so if you need a quick relief there’s a stop 😁.
We kept walking up the slope with a bit of a pant as it was humid. Found a furry caterpillar, clicked some pics of the ladies and a tiny waterfall on the way.
We then continued up Barker Road.
And then we took Findlay Path to the peak.
Finally we were up there. Had some coffee at Pacific Coffee, shopped a bit at the Peak Tower mall and then headed down a very happy bunch.
I have hiked this trail before and the views you get on a sunny day are fantastic.
But yes the views are lovely on a cloudy day too.
This is not one of my favourite hikes since it’s concrete but yes you get lovely views of Hong Kong from the top.
It is stroller friendly ( need strength to push up that baby) and pet friendly. Do try this hike people for a good workout.
