Pok Fu Lam to the Peak

There is an arduous mountain trail leading to the Peak. It starts in Pok Fu Lam valley and winds uphill through the country park.

What a climb it is! So many people take that climb on Boxing Day to exercise their legs, clear their minds, renew their spirits, make those hearts beat.

We joined them. We learned about the Eagle's Claw plant, we traced the water courses, drew the ground, rattled bamboo, rested our legs.

On a clear day, the views at the top are astonishing. Some people say that alone is worth the climb.

But what did you expect? Of course we cheated! We started at the top, and walked all the way down.
