High West

High West (Chinese: 西高山) is a mountain in Hong Kong Island.

The mountain has a height of 494 m (1,621 ft). It is west of Victoria Peak, north of Pok Fu Lam and south of Lung Fu Shan.[1] Queen Mary Hospital is at its west slope and Harlech Road passes its north slope. Hatton Road and Lugard Road end in the pass between High West and Victoria Peak. The mountain is located within Pok Fu Lam Country Park.[2]

Although not as high as Victoria Peak, its peak is a much less touristed location and offers panoramic views over the western and southern sides of the island, as well as Kowloon and parts of New Territories to the north. A small unmarked trail near the junction of Hatton, Lugard and Harlech Roads leads to the top. On clear days, Tai Mo Shanto the north, Castle Peak to the north-west, Lantau Peak to the west, Tate's Cairn to the north-east and the Lemma Islands to the south are visible.
