As with most hikes in HK, Lion Rock was challenging, and being at the top can be scary, but definitely worth it.

If you think the Peak is the most iconic mountain in HK, then you are wrong! We even have a song about the Lion Rock! You can enjoy amazing scene from the lion rock!

Just a short MTR trip away from the city and such a great place. You can also combine it with the spectacular Wong Tai Sin Temple which is right by the MTR station where you get off. We chose to walk up to the park which takes about twenty minutes before you reach the start of the trail. The trail itself is nice and scenic. It gets steeper the higher you go though so you need a basic level of fitness for this one. But the reward is fantastic views over Kowloon and beyond. Well worth the sweat to get to the top. And if you’re lucky as we were, you get to see the monkeys too.

Hike for only 1-1.5 hours then you can see the spectacular city scenery of Kowloon and a little bit of Hong Kong island, also with the hills as background. Easy hiking trail. If you can only spare one day for hiking in Hong Kong, the Lion Rock is where you should visit.
