A trip to Victoria Peak is a must for visitors to Hong Kong. Many ride up the Peak Tram and enjoy the view from there but don't know there's much more to see.
A circle route takes you all the way around the Peak, giving a view in every direction. Parts of the trail go through well established forest and it feels more like being in the jungle than in the middle of a densely populated city.
It's definitely one of the best places to see the skylines of Central and Kowloon, separated by Victoria Harbour.
The circle takes about an hour at a reasonable walking pace.
To get there, take the Peak Tram or climb up one of several trails from Central. There are also buses available.

I went to Hong Kong in January. I was originally thinking of going to Victoria Peak to take a night view, but I change my mind going there at night, so I went to the mountain early on the morning. 💼
We took the train and up to the mountain. I like the beautiful 🏔scenery on the top of the mountain. I feel surprised so much ~
When I reached the top of the mountain, it was still early and the fog did not spread away. But it is great to see the panoramic view of the whole Victoria Harbour.❣️
Victoria Peak is a nice place to go for a walk or hiking in the morning. You can exercise while enjoying the view of Hong Kong! Victoria Peak is the highest point in Hong Kong where you can see the city landscape and the beautiful skyline in the morning 👍
The best place to overlook the city of Hong Kong is the Victoria Peak
If it is a holiday, Hong Kong people are really violent! We have not yet reached the top of the cable car, and a group of people who are far away from the hustle and bustle are surging! It is a particularly interesting process to take the cable car to the top of the mountain. The carriage is very spacious, but because the slope of the mountain is a bit high, the standing tourists are pushing the handrails hard. We all felt that the whole persons center of gravity was leaning back, and it felt like the roller coaster was going downhill.
I suggest to go to the top of the Victoria Peak in the evening, when the afterglow of the setting sun is completely exhausted, the night is also opened. The sky is light blue, painted dark blue, and then reduced to sea blue until it turns purple, darkens, and turns black. And Hong Kong is also cooperating with the sky, and there are some sporadic lights in the distance. It should be the epitome of a certain life in the city that I have never known. Later, more and more people began to live at night, lighting up the home that may be warm, may be happy, may work so may be so bright. All of them, with the deep blues, and the lights of the tall buildings themselves, have become the fascinating night view of Hong Kong.
Standing at 552 m, Victoria Peak is the highest hill on Hong Kong Island. From the summit area, you can enjoy a stunning panoramic view. The public walking paths around the peak offer excellent vantage points for photographing Victoria Harbor and the marvelous Hong Kong skyline. It's possible to reach Victoria Peak by bus or via the historic cable car. There are stores and restaurants located in the Peak Galleria. Visiting at sunset or at night is simply spectacular. There is arguably no better place from which to glimpse central Hong Kong.
