Walk description

Devil Peak Hong Kong

Devil’s Peak Hike is a relatively easy hike that won’t take more than a couple of hours of your time. It’s perfect for those on the island, or on Kowloon side because it’s easy to get to by MTR. But what makes it unique is that the trail passes through an area of historical interest for Hong Kong. What was once a home to pirates, and a base for military importance is today a family hike that offers great views of Hong Kong’s skyline and harbour. The history of the approximately 222 meter tall peak makes it a great place for exploring. Briefly, Devil’s Peak was garrisoned by the British Army in the 20th century, and before hand, in the 19th century, it was controlled by local pirates. Thus it got its name, “Devil’s Peak”. To this day, there are remnants of the old batteries, and that is one reason why Devil’s Peak is a great place to do some exploring.

After hiking Devil’s Peak, you can either head back to the MTR and travel home, or you can explore the Lei Yue Mun traditional fishing village.
