Lion Rock, Hong Kong
(4.8/5 based on 20+ reviews on the web)
Lion Rock, or less formally Lion Rock Hill, is a hill in Hong Kong. It is located between Kowloon Tong in Kowloon and Tai Wai in the New Territories, and is 495 metres high. The peak consists of granite covered sparsely by shrubs.Lion Rock is famous for its shape and is visible from various places in Kowloon; its resemblance to a crouching lion is most striking from the Choi Hung and San Po Kong areas in East Kowloon. A trail wends its way up the forested hillside to the top, culminating atop the lion's head. The trail can be followed across the profile of the lion, eventually linking up with the MacLehose Trail. The rock provides a beautiful view of the city and Hong Kong Island in the distance. The entire hill is located within Lion Rock Country Park in Hung Mui Kuk, Tai Wai and is made passable by vehicles by Lion Rock Tunnel, which connects Kowloon Tong and Tai Wai.Lion Rock is near another famous rock structure, the Amah Rock. A road in Kowloon City is named Lion Rock Road (獅子石道).
Lion Rock is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Hong Kong Edition.

  • It looks from the window of the House. In good weather, green is clearly visible and is pretty cool. There are rocks resembling the shape of animals in the world, Mt. Lion Rock pretty decently lion looks like. Not yet climbed on top look just so, you want to try soon.

  • 獅子山是香港最著名的山之一。 位置很好, 在市區之中, 很受香港人歡迎。 行上去不太難, 看日落十分漂亮。 
  • 獅子山是香港一個著名的山峰, 位於九龍和沙田之間, 因為形狀像一隻獅子而得名, 在黃大仙沙田坳道搭18專線小巴至慈雲山沙田坳村, 沿沙田坳道步行約30分鐘上斜, 便到達獅子亭. 可俯瞰九龍半島全景.
