Pictures of Victoria Peak
Culminating at 552m high, the “Victoria Peak” is the highest mountain on the island of Hong Kong.It is a place highly prized by tourists, because it offers a breathtaking panorama: the city of HK located below, Kowloon just opposite, the port of container carriers …. and on the other side , the view is infinite, between the reservoir of Pof Fu lam and strings of islands as far as the eye can see!The Peak is also one of the most exclusive areas of the city since the colonial era. Today, there are the square meters of housing that cost the most in the world.Initially, this area was only served by chairs to carry! Since 1888, this district is connected to the city by a rack railway: this “tram” allows a fast and not tiring ascent, but also a discovery of the city all along the route.
