Tai Mo Shan, Hong Kong

(4.6/5 based on 25 reviews on the web)
Challenge yourself with a hike up Tai Mo Shan, the highest peak of Hong Kong. Leave the city hustle and climb or drive all the way to the 957 meter (3139 feet) summit. The surrounding park is a wildlife haven, with a variety of bird and butterfly species. Trek the many scenic trails, with varying difficulty levels and different viewpoints offering stunning vistas of lush green plantations and surrounding islands. The coldest place in Hong Kong, this area sees snowfall during cold spells. Facilities such as campsites, grills, information centers, and toilets are available, but no cafes or restaurants, so bring your own food supplies. Put Tai Mo Shan into our Hong Kong trip builder to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Hong Kong.

  • 某日,凌晨下班。與一友到山上看日出,是日清晨五時三十,而滿天星河。 是日六時四十分日出,於日起前,雲霧如海。 注意︰有點冷。 坐的士上山,在分岔路口下車。走上去不用半小時,對於不同年齡的人而言都適合。基本上是用最短的時間走上最高的香港山脈,而且是星空/日出的最佳觀景地點之一。 在一月、二月的時間基本上是冬天最好的觀日日子。 香況的日出登山客,絕大多數都會往這個地方去。  more »
