Peak Gardens Has Many Picnic Spots and Hiking Trails
Peak Gardens, which surrounds the peak, has many green open spaces and nature trails. The peak is a popular attraction that sees over 7 million tourists annually and also holds the trophy for being Hong Kong’s highest viewing platform.
A couple of popular nature trails in Victoria Peak Gardens include the Governor’s Walk, which takes around 30 minutes and the Morning Trail. The Morning Trail is a 2,800m long paved trail that will take you around Mount Victoria. Then there is circular walk, which is made up of Harlech Road and Lugard Road and as the name suggests circles Mount Victoria.
Hiking is a common pastime in Hong Kong, possibly due to the density of the buildings and population of the city which makes enjoying the outdoors, trees, shrubs, wildlife and, of course, the scenic views from the peak and gardens a very relaxing and enjoyable pass time.
Peak Gardens are also popular with picnic lovers and families who have pets because it is one of the few parks in Hong Kong where pets are welcome and picnics offer a great way to enjoy the outdoors in a relatively inexpensive way.
