Overview

No votes yet

Standing 957 metres, Tai Mo Shan is Hong Kong's highest peak. Enveloping this massif is 1,440 hectares of natural territory, designated as the Tai Mo Shan Country Park. Established in 1979, the park borders Tai Po Kau Nature Reserve in the east and Shing Mun Country Park in the south. To the west is Route Twisk and Tai Lam Country Park just beyond the highway. To the north is the old valley of Lam Tsuen.The highest peak of Hong Kong is pure volcanic rock. The southern, western and southwestern valleys are characterized by heavy deposits of alluvial soil. Given the high altitude and climatic adversities, these uplands are generally infertile. As a result, most parts of Tai Mo Shan Country Park are grass slopes, with limited forests only in the foothills.
