Why does it seem to me every time my travel back to the USA comes due, a typhoon is approaching? (I am scheduled to leave on Thu morning). This one is called Lionrock, named after a famous hill in Hong Kong. It is located in Kowloon and is 495 metres high. We drive though the Lion Rock tunnel on our way to Hong Kong on Fridays.
From Wikipedia : Lion Rock is famous for its shape and is visible from various places in Kowloon; its resemblance to a crouching lion is most striking from the Choi Hung and San Po Kong areas in East Kowloon. A trail wends its way up the forested hillside to the top, culminating atop the lion’s head. The trail can be followed across the profile of the lion, eventually linking up with the MacLehose Trail. The rock provides a beautiful view of the city and Hong Kong Island in the distance. The entire hill is located within Lion Rock Country Park in Hung Mui Kuk, Tai Wai and is made passable by vehicles by Lion Rock Tunnel, which connects Kowloon Tong and Tai Wai.
