HK's Peak Tram

If you want to have a fun and cool short ride up an extremely steep mountain slope, then be thrilled by a ride, take the Peak tram. Pulled by steel cables, the tram climbs 373 meters (about 1,200 feet) up the slope of a mountain to the Peak Tower terminus. Its so steep that the buildings you would pass by look like its leaning at 45 degree angle. Choose to be seated on the right side of the Peak Tram as you have better view. There are some intermediate stations in going up to the Peak Tower terminus. To get off in one of these stations, you would need to press a button found in the middle of the Peak tram.

The Peak Tram Station could be found in Garden Road, Central near St. Joseph building and you can reach it in either of the following ways :

1. Take bus 15C from Central's Pier 6

2. Walk from Central's MTR Station Exit J2, walk along Garden Road which is in between The Bank of China building and The Cheung Kong Centre. The walk to the tram station would takes about 15 to 20 minutes.

Note that during public holidays or weekends, queuing for the Peak Tram may take about 30 minutes.
