Feeling tired, I didn’t go for a long walk on Saturday. But in the afternoon, I decided to go up to the Peak.

Multiple options are available: the tramway from Garden Road, the bus from Central or a taxi from everywhere. However, I decided to walk up Old Peak Road. Starting from Botanical garden, I went up the congested Old Peak road. So many taxis moving people from Central to Mid Levels apartment blocks or to the Peak. Half way up, I left the road to reach a walking path and after another 30 minutes, I reached the top and the crowds.

On the way down, I followed another road to go to the Women and Children Hospital before moving down hills through Chatham path. Very hilly and very nice rain forest environment. You just forget you’re in Hong Kong. A small temple at the bottom remind me we’re still in Asia.

The Peak Tower is at 396 meters above sea level. My starting point on Macdonnel road is at most 100 meters above see level. So it’s about 300 meters (984 feet) elevation gain treck. Should I go up there every once in a while to fight obesity?
