  • 很易走的山路,找準日落時間可以看完日落下山時到盧吉道再看夜景(晨運俓有街燈的) 我走路慢,由港大上到西高山約3小時,一般人2小時左右吧。 
  • The funicular on Victoria Peak is the duty of almost any tourist who arrived in Hong Kong S.A.R.. This is not a problem. Affectionately and sadly we examine the town with a lookout that on top of the Peak Tower. A view of the skyscrapers and urban landscape. But after rising to such heights, you can catch another chip. If you look at the city, on the left side of the Tower there is a way. Head on it. At the outset, it is quite pedestrian. Moving fifteen minutes. Maybe twenty. It all depends on the State of the soul, and health to you and your companions. But I warn you, hardships and deprivations journey need to be prepared in advance. Because, for example, my wife started to whine after almost the first steps. -Where do we premsâ? And why do we need it? However, the proposal to return refused. Type:-Time came the need until the end of the publication. HA! Is she still did not know what route to the endpoint on the observation deck of the West peak will have another up climb trail between trees and bushes. A pointer where you want to collapse there. Most importantly it does not prozevat′. To the left and up. Ten minutes of ascent. Out of breath, my wife expressed all that she was thinking about me, about Hong Kong S.A.R. and its hiking trails. And here and got finally. The observation deck. Yes, no doubt from the top of the mountain. Urban landscape remained in the side, and here we see the Islands and bays. That's cool. Slightly interesting. But the place is pretty wild. Wind howling in my ears. Yes and the Sun bakes. A little uncomfortable. Stand, look down and think:-and it we need it? Strain had a lot, but nothing to write home about, basically, have not seen ... If you go to the West peak, then wear comfortable shoes and take a couple of water bottles.

  • 我不是遊客,我是土生土長的香港人,很喜歡行山,所以我真心推介西高山給所有遊客。大多遊客喜歡去山頂欣賞香港美景,但其實我覺得西高山所看到的風景比山頂更美。 如果初階行山人仕我建議他們走正常大路上山,如果有中至高級行山經驗的朋友們,我會建議他們可選擇走捷徑小路攀登上山頂,因為風景更美。
