It is 552 meters or 1811 feet above sea-level and the highest mountain on Hong Kong Island.
Back in the 1800's, wealthy residents were privileged enough to have homes up there to escape the summer heat down below.
Presently, over 7 million visitors come to the "The Peak" annually by tram although I think you can hike up as well.
When I was there last winter, it felt like 7 million people were in line in front of me.
Some residents still live on this hill and each stop is lit up on the board above.
I think residents would prefer to hike home than to get stuck riding the tram with tourists.
If this view looks familiar, you might have seen it on tv or on postcards.
Look past all the skyscrapers and you can see Victoria Harbour as mentioned in my previous blog post.
I wonder what they do with all the written cards. I think it would be an interesting read if they published them.
