Description

Tai Mo Shan Country Park surrounds Tai Mo Shan, the highest peak in Hong Kong and the second most highest coastal peak in China. During the Jurassic period, Tai Mo Shan was a volcano however it is now extinct. Visitors can now check out Kwun Yam Shan, a small hill located near the mountain which expels warm air through the cracks in the rocks, also known as "hot pots." These hot pots are the remnants of the volcano. Tai Mo Shan used to be popular for a type of green tea called mist/cloud tea which grew on the mountainside. The tea shoots can still be picked at this park.

Tai Mo Shan (957m), Kwun Yam Shan (546m) and Kadoorie Farm/ Botanic Garden are all located in Tai Mo Shan County Park. Tai Mo Shan is the highest peak in Hong Kong, there are a number of hiking trails going to its peak and this one begins from the south side of mountain to the north. This uphill trail is a popular and easy one, the views are also beautiful when hiking up to the peak, but the downhill trail is not obvious and you should use AllTrails to identify its route. Note that the trail will pass through a fenced private botanic garden, the gate may not be locked but good luck. Warning signs can be seen in this area and the trail going down Kwun Yam Shan is very steep and a bit hard, only suitable for experienced hiker.Show more
