What You Can Expect

Half-Day Hiking Tour at Kam Shan Country Park in Hong Kong

4-Hour Group Tour: Hiking Through Kam Shan Country Park In Hong Kong

Meet up with your hiking guide at the Prince Edward MTR Station Exit D in either the morning or afternoon (depending on the time you’ve selected). After a quick 15-minute bus transfer, you’ll arrive at the departure point for your hike. Get things started with an easy ascent up a nearby hill, observing groups of macaques frolicking and grooming themselves as you climb. Photographers will have plenty of time to capture a few snapshots of these playful primates.

Over the course of your journey you’ll traverse around 7.4 miles (12 kilometers) of terrain, stopping to investigate landmarks like ‘The Gin Drinkers Line,’ a series of British military defenses built between 1936 and 1938 constructed to counter the impending Japanese invasion. Explore the line’s collection of bunkers, machine gun posts and subterranean trenches with the aid of a flashlight. Finish your trip along the famous Wilson Trail, also known as Smuggler’s Ridge, before reaching the end of your walking adventure. A brief bus ride will return you back to your starting subway station.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2017

Enjoyed the experience immensely. My wife and I chose the hike as it offered both nature and history in the one outing. Got to experience close encounters with the monkeys and had a chance to explore sections of the Shing Mun redoubt, a central part of the Gin Drinkers Line that was intended to delay the Japanese invasion of Hong Kong in WWII. Steve, our guide, did a great job leading us through the maze of trails. His knowledge of the path and his willingness to not push the pace allowed us oldies to cope with the terrain and be amazed at the absolute serenity of the place, not more than half an hour from the hustle and bustle of the streets below. Thanks Steve.
