Victoria Peak – a hidden country walk above the city Victoria Peak – a hidden country walk above the city

Hong Kong's five best walksFew visitors to Hong Kong miss a trip up Victoria Peak, but few choose to walk up. There are many routes, the gentlest starts on the backside in Pok Fu Lam past the reservoir and along a narrow road. Once you reach the bustling square, find Lugard road to escape the crowds and enjoy a one hour looping road that affords spectacular views around the peak. I started after lunch, timing the walk to finish back at the galleria at sunset to watch the lights come up over the city followed by dinner with a view and a bus home.
