Lion Rock Sunset
For those who thought The Peak was the most dramatic summit looming over Victoria Harbour, think again. There is a roaring lion to north.
It may not be as well known, but the Lion Rock is right up there in terms of grandeur. Conquer this rugged ridge and one will witness some of Hong Kong’s finest views. Feel the intense sprawl of Kowloon and enjoy the iconic backdrop of HK Island behind. Meanwhile a gaze round the other side reveals Sha Tin Valley and the expansive hills of the New Territories. Not only is being at the top incredible, but the walking to be had either side is most enjoyable.
Generally moderate with a few steeper sections
Cost (Prices per person HKD)
