One of the world’s oldest and most famous funicular railways in the world, the Peak Tram in Hong Kong rises from 28 metres to 396 metres above sea level along a 1.4 kilometre track with a gradient of 4 to 27 degrees. Since 1888, the Peak Tram has carried tens of millions of overseas and local visitors to Hong Kong’s most popular destination. It is the foremost method for visitors to travel to the Peak and continues to grow to accommodate increasing tourist numbers

Over 125 Years of Tramway Excellence


The Peak Tramways
According to a study by The University of Hong Kong, passengers riding on The Peak Tram will experience a spectacular visual illusion; when going uphill, the high rises of the right ride of the tram appear to fall toward The Peak. This Peak Tram illusion is induced by a change of the subjective vertical caused by the tilted visual environment and reclining body position of observers inside the tram.
