...some of which, down from The Peak for example, are accessible to nearly anyone irrespective of their fitness level. Lots of great views and scenery, which are helped by the reservoir too.

Conveniently located country park and simple hikes near the Peak
Feb 2020
The Pok Fu Lam Country Park is situated in the area directly south and west of Victoria Peak. This is a 270-hectare park designated in 1979 that provides hiking trails and outdoors area for residents and tourists to enjoy on Hong Kong Island.

The most common way to enjoy Pok Fu Lam Country Park is by way of the paved walking trails that wind through the park between the Pok Fu Lam Village and Victoria Peak. They are well maintained and a fairly easy grade of walk up and back down from the Peak. The scenery throughout is lush, green and forested.

In addition to the hikes within Pok Fu Lam Country Park, you will find a small reservoir which was constructed in 1863, four masonry bridges (1863-1871), the Former Watchman's Cottage (1860-1863) and other structures which are collectively designed as a Declared Monument or historical value in Hong Kong.

Note: For those who hike from the Peak down through the country park. At the end of the trail, you can take bus transportation back towards MTR stations or Central district, reconnecting you back to the main sightseeing areas of the city.

Great Hike from The Peak

I hiked from The Peak to Pok Fu Lam Village. The village is interesting and is a must see. Feels like you've gone back in time.

From the Peak ...
Apr 2018 • Couples
I imagined it would be a 10 minute walk down to Pokfulam Village. So you can imagine my horror when the torture went on for almost an hour! We did have to keep stopping for rest though. The only consolation is that we could’ve been going up the peak rather than down. If you enjoy your exercise & are fit, then this will be for you, if not then save your energy.

A Fun Hike from Pok Fu Lam Reservoir to Victoria Peak
Feb 2018 • Solo
During my recent visit to Hong Kong I’d stayed at the T Hotel. My room had a view to a “village” of tightly built zinc roofed houses on a hill slope. I was curious to explore the area and managed to find some free time one morning.

I’d started from Pok Fu Lam Road. If you wish to do this hike you may take a bus from the bus stop outside HKU MTR Station. Most of the buses will pass by “Pok Fu Lam Reservoir” which is the stop you should alight.

The beginning part of the hike was a easy one, along some interesting sights such as the HKU hostels (a colonial old building but well restored), a Reservoir, and information boards about the history of Pok Fu Lam (named after a type of bird) and the history of the name “Hong Kong” (relating to a type of incense tree). All the information were educational which made the hike so much more interesting as I was hiking alone.

The weather was cool that morning and it took about an hour of slow walk up the Peak. There are two sections which have steep slopes which demand a bit more effort but was otherwise a easy climb.

The reward is the stunning view from the top of the hill.

A green oasis of tranquility
Aug 2017 • Friends
I didn't realise that there was anywhere in Hong Kong quite like this. I am used to the feeling of high energy and watching the busy pace of life that exudes out of every area. However this place is calm and peaceful. It offers the most beautiful views and has a fabulous tree walk. The walk is level and therefore suitable for all ages or for running/jogging.

Peace and tranquility on HK Island
Jul 2017 • Solo
I used to live in Pok Fu Lam, and on my recent visit to Hong Kong, and suffering from jey lag, I decided to get a taxi out to Pok Fu Lam reservoir road and do the walk along that road up the hill and turn right to go to Chi Fu for breakfast. It was 5.30AM and v quiet. There are local people walking and exercising along the route and minding their own business often with a courteous "hello." As you walk past the reservoir you can see fish and tortoise from the viewing points and the vegetation is lush with many birds. As you get up the hill you will find a number of sign posts...go to the left to walk up to the Peak, go right for a walk to Chi Fu and Aberdeen. If you need a flat stretch of bitumen to run along the road itself is about 800 metres I suspect. Overall, this is a quiet place in the early morning, a good place to gather thoughts and plan your day. The 40M and 40 buses pass this area if you choose to use public transport.

Great place in on the main island
Aug 2015 • Business
I stayed at the Guest accommodation of University of HongKong at Star Building in Pok Fu Lam. I stayed here for a few months on an assignment. Great place. The campus is great. Supermarket is awesome, especially the stairs from the supermarket at the bottom of the hill to Pok Fu Lam road. Lots of restaurants. Roads are narrow but public transport is great. Very clean. Quieter than Central, Kowloon and other parts of HongKong.

Away From the Crowds
Feb 2016 • Couples
After catching the Peak Tram and enjoying the view of Hong Kong, we decided to walk down through Pok Fu Lam Country Park on our way to Aberdeen. It was quite surprising how quickly you were able to get away from the crowds at the Peak, we only met a dozen or so people in the 3/4hour that it took us to walk down past the reservoir. The silence is also welcoming, with only birdsong and babbling brooks to be heard. It is reasonably steep in places and I can imagine that the asphalt path could be quite slippery when wet, so take care. Once we had walked along the lake and the stables (this explained the smell), we caught a bus on Pok Fu Lam Road to take us the short journey to Aberdeen Harbour.
This was a pleasant change to the usually frenetic city, and probably got us to Aberdeen just as quickly as any other form of transport from the Peak.
