Lion Rock hike

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.
