Kowloon Peak: The Uniqueness of Hong Kong in 180°

Kowloon Peak or Fei Ngo Shan 飛鵝山 is a mountain in the northeast of New Kowloon, Hong Kong. The height of the mountain is about 600 meters and it’s situated in Ma On Shan Country Park

The ascent to the summit is pretty easy and the path is rocky with steps. The ascent will take no longer than 2-3 hours, it depends on the rate of ascent, the time needed to take photos along the way and the section chosen.

For this hike I’d recommend to wear shoes with good grip, since the top is rocky and the cliff is not a joke, especially if your hike continues to Suicide Cliff located straight ahead of Kowloon Peak


Take the MTR to Choi Hung Station (Kwun Tong Line) exit C1/C2. From Choi Hung Station there is a long way to the starting point of the ascent, so you can grab a taxi to Fei Ngo Shan 飛鵝山, which costs about 35HKD and 10 minutes.

Otherwise you can walk to the starting point that will take about 1 hour. Walk along Clear Water Bay road and then turn to Fei Ngo Shan road


Reached to this point, the ascent starts. There are several indications along the way



From the starting point, the hike will take about 2-3 hours to Kowloon Peak. The section chosen was from Fei Ngo Shan


During the ascent there will be beautiful views of Sai Kung, Sharp island…worth to keep looking behind for nice photos while hiking up

Finally arrived to the rocky Peak, one of the best panoramic views of Hong Kong


The way back will take about 1 hour + another hour of walking to the MTR.
