The Peak Tram

In Hong Kong

Getting to The Peak is thru the Peak Tram located in St John Building near the Cotton Tree Drive. This is one of the World's oldest and most famous funicular cable monorail, the tram rises to 396 meters (about 1,300 feet) above sea level. It is so steep that the buildings you pass look like they are leaning a gradient of between 4 to 27 degrees. 

The place also shows the first tram carriage

We are lined up and waiting for the Tram to arrive on this station

It takes about 20 to 30 minutes travel going up and down the Peak.

You will see a magnificent view while riding going up and down the peak.

The Tram is being pulled by these cables
