Lion Rock Park makes for an excellent hike, where adventure seekers and those in love with breathtaking sceneries are rewarded with unhindered, spectacular views of the city and its mountainous surroundings.
The Lion Rock Park, located in Hong Kong covers an area of around 5.57 sq km, featuring the magnificent Lion Rock and Amah Rock (also known as Mong Fu Shek).
Fortunately, if you’ve made the right decision to stay at one of the many hotels in Wan Chai Hong Kong, getting to Lion Rock Park is easy – especially from properties such as Cosmo Hotel Wan Chai Hong Kong, which is located approximately 30 minutes away.
As with any hike, trainers or hiking shoes are a must! The entire trail is about 3 km long, and the time spent can obviously vary from person to person. If you’re more athletic and don’t spend your weekends gorging on pizza and beer, then it’ll take approximately 2 and a half hours. However if you are on the opposite end of that scale, prepare to spend a good 3 – 4 hours on your hike.
The views are undeniably the best and most amazing part of any hike, AMIRIGHT?! Once you successfully reach the peak, you’ll be blessed with views of the city. Catch your breath and inhale the beauty that stretches out before you.
