Company Profile : The Peak Tram is one of the world's oldest and most famous funicular railways. Opened in May 1888, it has made daily journeys connecting Hong Kong's Central business district to The Peak ever since. The double reversible funicular railway, as it is technically known, rises from 28m to 396m above sea level along a 1.4 km track with a gradient of between 4 to 27 degrees. Among Hong Kong's most popular tourist attractions, it terminates at the new Peak Tower shopping and entertainment complex - and one of the world's greatest panoramic views – the Sky Terrace.
