The Peak Tram – Hong Kong

[source]

Hong Kong’s Peak Tram is a cliff railway that uses a cable attached to a pair of ascending and descending trams counterbalancing each other on rails, moving them up and down the steep slope of Victoria Peak.

The Peak Tram is a fun way to get up The Peak, but lineups can be very long and depending on the time of day (we went up on a early Friday evening) you might be jam-packed inside the tram (we didn’t get seats). Due to the steep incline, we had to hang on tightly while standing in the tram’s aisle. Although it was very busy the night we went up to The Peak, we didn’t have to wait very long since trams depart every 10 to 15 minutes.

Outside of the Garden Road Peak Tram Lower Terminus entrance, there is a ticket booth selling Peak Tram, Sky Terrace 428, and Madame Tussauds Wax Museum tickets. We opted for the three in one pass, for a few extra dollars, to really take advantage of all that The Peak has to offer. It was well worth the spectacular views!

  • Just keep in thoughts that the tram only prevents if there is place, so it might be best to take it during the off time. Also, the advanced place near to the top is simpler to get to than the one at the end because you never have to go up constant. It is also simpler to increase from the High, your last getaway.
