Top 3 hiking trails for different levels

Hong Kong may be one of the most densely populated cities in the world, but within a short walk from the hustle and bustle of city-life you’ll find a verdant oasis. In fact, 70% of Hong Kong is green, with over 40% of its land area in protected in country parks.

香港是全球人口最密集的城市之一,但其實距離鬧市不遠就有青山綠水。香港綠地面積佔70%,更有40%被劃為郊野公園,受到嚴格保護。繁華與恬靜不過咫尺。

 

Beginners:  Peak Circle Walk  山頂環迴步行徑

Peak Circle Walk

The walk winds around the highest point of Hong Kong Island, an easy stroll to catch stunning views of the Hong Kong skyline. Aside from your bird’s eye view of the city (all 360 degrees), you will also encounter impressive mansions. Take Peak Tram on Garden Road from MTR Central, Exit J2, or leave MTR Hong Kong, Exit D then take Bus 15 from the Exchange Square Bus Terminus.

位於太平山頂的這條人行道路環山而建,是港島最高的遠足徑。這條簡單的步行徑部分是有百年歷史的“棧道”(沿著懸崖峭壁興建的窄道),走在其中,可以俯瞰香港最美麗動人的城市天際線。港鐵中環站J2出口步行至花園道山下纜車總站,再乘山頂纜車登山;或從港鐵香港站D出口中環交易廣場巴士總站乘15號巴士至山頂廣場。
