The Lion Rock Hill, or simply Lion Rock is one of the highest mountains in Hong Kong, sitting between Kowloon Tong and Tai Wai, touted as the best hiking trail. Perched at 495 meters high, the Lion Rock is a creative structure of rocks that basically resemble a sphinx-like seated Lion, hence, the name. The Lion Rock Hike is an adventurous yet worthwhile trek where the efforts of climbing are rewarded by glorious views of the Hong Kong scenic landscapes. If hiking in Hong Kong is part of one's itinerary, Lion's Rock should be on top of the list.
The hike up to the Lion Rock forms part 5 of the MacLehose Trail and is fortunately well signposted and marked for convenience. It is a great outdoor activity for everyone looking to explore the city in a uniquely fun way because it enables you to soak in the true essence of Hong Kong inclusive of its nature, impeccable skyline, traditional vibes of the underrated areas and beyond.
