Views from Sai Kung to Lion Rock

Firstly be prepared. Mid summer is demanding and the hike can be strenuous but in the end it’s worth it. Take water and sugar snacks. Also do with others. There are signs warning of the dangers so only go if you are an experienced hiker.

The route I took up to the peak was as follows. Took the MTR to Choi Hung (exit B) then headed up the hill along Clearwater Bay Road. Then a few hundred meters later turn left onto Clearwater Bay Road. Follow the road up the hill - quite a long way. Then turn left on Fei Ngo Shan Road. Then head left onto Fei Ha Road (looks like a driveway). Halfway up there is a small gap/path that leads up the hill.

Take that and proceed to head on up. It can get steep but there are ropes at times to help. Eventually the path opens up at rocky outcrops (be very careful). Ultimately you reach an area below Kowloon Peak which is reached by a set of steps.

Views are awesome once there - basically 360 degrees of HK. Chill out and admire the scenery. I went up late afternoon but I reckon sunset would be the best (if you are ok to walk back in the dark).

Returning I walked past Kowloon Peak (north) past the helipad which leads to a path down the other side of the peak (on the right). Continue downhill until you reach Fei Ngo Shan Road (takes at least 30 mins). Walk down the road until you reach Clearwater Bay Road again - completing the round trip. From here there are minibuses or taxis. I took a taxi as I was fairly exhausted. Good luck!

Spectacular views...

...over the city and, even more so, when wandering over to ‘Suicide Cliff’. The scenery is truly incredible if you pick the right day, the clearer the better. Relatively easy walk up from Choi Hung MTR, mostly on the road in between some steep stairs and a bush trail section closest towards the observation point itself.

Misty, easy route and relaxing
Apr 2019 • Solo
Hmm. How do I start...

Well I checked a weather forecast and it said it was gonna be sunny all-day long, which was true... in the Kowloon City, but not at the peak. The peak was super misty and I saw nothing from the peak.

The route was easy, well-maintained from Fei Ngo Shan and I bumped with many other “uncles” and “aunties” taking the same route for a walk. It took me 1.5 hours to reach to the peak by walking. I started walking from MTR Choi Hung anyway.

It was fun that I finally reached the peak albeit there was nothing to see. But during my walking down, I managed to get a clearer view (maybe because it was almost noon and all mist were gone).

Anyway it was fun to try.

Super misty hike
Feb 2019 • Friends
We started around 1.30pm from Fei Ngo Shan Road
It was 16 degrees a cooler day. The route is nice and more to nature
Not so difficult but enjoyable
Middle of the way met over 6 wild bow and one almost chased us
Top of the mountain was super misty and the visibility was not even 50 mtrs
Beautiful and chilling

Go on a clear night

The night view is something to marvel at. The serenity of the surroundings with the view of the city lights is great. You just drive there, it’s very difficult to walk there as it is very dark and we did see some wild dogs on the way down the mountain.
Better alternative to The Peak, this is a more local loving version that has almost no tourists at night.

Apr 2018 • Solo
i made the mistake of walking all the way from Choi Hung Station instead of catching a taxi up fei ngo shan drive. however once i located the 328 marked on a rock i was fine getting up the top. walking up was great and easily marked path with steps. alot easier than the path i took to get up to lion rock. once up top you can make your way to Suicide Cliff for another impressive view of Hong Kong

Sweeping views

Definitely the best spot for a perfect panorama of Kowloon Peninsula, Victoria Harbour, Hong Kong and beyond!
It makes a good hike to walk up from Clearwater Bay Road to Kowloon Peak, then descend to Wong Tai Sin on another hill path. Perfect day out!

Only go up when it is clear, and with at least one buddy

I recommend taking a taxi up to the observation platform, so as to save time and energy. You will reach a pavilion first. Views are already spectacular at this stage but are marred by the electrical voltage towers. You go up some stone steps to reach the actual platform. At this point you can walk back down the road where you came from. If you get the taxi driver to wait, do note that the road is one-way only, and the driver will have to drive on and head towards Tsz Wan Shan.

The viewing platform is not on Kowloon Peak itself. To get to the summit, there are two ways: 1) either walk on the crests (not recommended if you are not familiar with the area) or 2) take the stone steps trail (which starts from Fei Ngo Shan road)

For 2), walk downhill towards Choi Hung. The start of the trail is UNMARKED from the road (see my photo) and I was fortunate to meet a local who showed me where it was. On some websites they will mention a red '328' sign spray-painted on a rock, but this has been REMOVED.

Take the trail on the RIGHT. The trail is essentially steep stone steps all the way up. You will then come across several large graves. Don't worry, keep going. Along the way you will see markings like 加油 which just means 'keep going'. At the summit you will see a signal transmission building and a helipad. You will also see the topographical marker (see my photo). At this point you can head back, or hike towards nearby peaks. Beware of loose soil and rocks.

You should only go up when the weather is absolutely clear, otherwise all you see is a blur. The area is very secluded/remote, so I highly recommend going on weekends and with at least one other person for safety. Mobile reception is poor and no mobile data. Pack light, and bring a windbreaker. Allow plenty of time for the ascent and descent.

Amazing alternative to The Peak
Nov 2015 • Friends
Great views from The Kowloon Peak (aka Fei Ngo Shan). Accessible by road or hiking path. Factor in several hours hike to get up there, take in the views and then get back again. Alternatively you can drive / take a taxi up there if time is tight. Limited facilities so pack everything you might need. Gets windy and cold in winter time.
