For the first day of year of Monkey we planned hiking next part of Wilson trail. The weather was perfect for a walk. Clear, blue sky, pleasant temperature. When we got outside Wong Tai Sin MTR, looked up and could see beautiful Lion Rock. Seeing this view we immediately changed our plans.
It was a tiring but great hike. I couldn’t stop taking photos. panoramic views of Kowloon and Hong Kong Island were breathtaking. It is quiet steep climb but not long and very rewarding.
Start of the hike at the Sha Tin Pass Road., pass the Fat Jong Temple.
Steep stairs up.
Lion Rock 495m.
Loving the view.
Perfect spot for hot coffee and homemade carrot cake. Also a spot where I got my lovely and painful sunburn.
Looking back to our coffee spot.
There is more to explore.
Steep climb down.
Easy end of our walk.
