Hong Kong Walk – Lugard Road Lookout to The Peak Tower

A walk from Lugard Road Lookout to the Peak Tower in Hong Kong.

Lugard Road Lookout (盧吉道觀景台) is definitely the best spot to take in the beautiful view of the Hong Kong skyline and Victoria Harbor

Lugard Road is a road located on Victoria Peak in Hong Kong, named after Sir Frederick Lugard, Governor of Hong Kong from 1907 to 1912.

Located some 400 metres (1,300 ft) above sea level, the road is a popular walking path that forms part of the Hong Kong Trail, and is known for spectacular vistas over Victoria Harbour.

The Peak Tower (凌霄閣) is a leisure and shopping complex located at Victoria Gap, near the summit of Victoria Peak on Hong Kong Island, Hong Kong.

It also houses the upper terminal of the Peak Tram. Both the Peak Tower and the Peak Tram are owned by the Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels group, the owner of Hong Kong’s Peninsula Hotel and other properties. The tower and tram are jointly promoted by the collective branding known as The Peak.

The Peak Tower is located at an elevation of 396 m, 156 m below the summit of Victoria Peak. Because the architects sought a design which would be prominent on the skyline but would not interrupt the natural line of the hills, they chose a site in a dip along the line of the hills, and restricted the tower’s height to 428 m above sea level.
