Devil's Peak Battery

Devil's Peak Battery

Why are there batteries and redoubts on the Devil's Peak? Turn the clock back to the World War II, defence installations such as redoubts and batteries were built on the Devil's Peak to protect Hong Kong from possible threats posed by the Japanese. However, the Japanese army attacked from another path, and Hong Kong was surrendered in the end. These military remains have been restored as a historical trail where visitors can appreciate these historical remains constructed a century ago. Also, visitors can enjoy the 270 degree-wide view from Lei Yue Mun Pass to the Victoria Harbour and Tseung Kwan O.


Yau Tong MTR station exit A1, and take the escalator across Lei Yue Mun Plaza . Then walk along Lei Yue Mun Road towards the Tseung Kwan O Chinese Permanent Cemetery. When you reach the gate at the side of the Ko Chiu Road roundabout, walk along the road for about 15-20 minutes. You can see a path to the Devil's Peak Battery on your left.
