Hong Kong Victoria Peak Tour

Visit Victoria Peak in Hong Kong

Known as “The Peak,” Victoria Peak in Hong Kong is a 1,800 foot mountain that all visitors should visit during their trip to Hong Kong. Although much of beauty, including the extensive homes, is at the top of the mountain, half of the fun is the journey up The Peak courtesy of the cable tram.

The Peak Tram, which has been offering passengers a ride up the incredibly steep incline for 120 years. Although it began its first journey in 1888, the tram itself has undergone major changes over the years. Technological and programming advances have helped the Tram remain a reliable source.

The current system, which enables a microprocessor-controlled electrical system to operate the tram, includes functions like acceleration, deceleration, and station stops.

Since the late 1800’s, when Governor MacDonnell built a summer home on top of the Peak and Peak Hotel was also built, many of Hong Kong’s wealthiest residents have purchased property in the cooler, but humid climate of the mountain. The invention of the Tram helped increase the number of residential properties on top of Victoria Peak in Hong Kong, as well as the rise in commercial properties there as well.
