Golden Hill Country Park or Kam Shan Country Park (Chinese: 金山郊野公園; Jyutping: gam1 saan1 gaau1 je5 gung1 jyun4), also known in Hong Kong as Monkey Hill (Chinese: 馬騮山; Jyutping: maa5 lau1 saan1), established on 24 June 1977, is a country park located in the ranges north of Kowloon, Hong Kong. It covers an area of 3.37 square kilometres (1.30 sq mi). Most of the area is covered by the Kowloon Group of Reservoirs. Inside the park, there are jogging trails, barbecue and picnic areas, which are easily accessible from Tai Po Road (Piper's Hill) via waterworks access roads. The park takes its name from the 369 metres (1,211 ft) peak, Golden Hill or Kam Shan (金山), which is the highest feature in the area.


Panoramic views can be enjoyed from the slopes of Golden Hill and several places along the western ridge at the park. From these vantage points, the whole length of Smugglers Ridge, Tai Mo Shan (the highest peak in Hong Kong), Needle Hill, Sha Tin New Town, Lion Rock and Beacon Hill can be seen. The northern part of Kowloon, the western anchorage of the harbour, Stonecutters Island, the housing estates of Kwai Chung, the container port, the industrial parts of Tsing Yi Island and the town of Tsuen Wan can also be viewed from here. The park is famous for its conservations of macaque monkeys.

  • I love this country park but if you are scared of monkey, then you'd better be aware that as there are thousands of monkey and they can come to you really close. I would say if you don't show up with food or supermarket plastic bag, they may not come to you, but if you bring food or carry with supermarket plastic bag, I need to warn you that they definitely would ask you for food with their own way taking from you directly.
  • Decent trail, and lots of monkeys. The views are mediocre and the trail is not difficult. There are bathrooms available along the trail. Overall quite enjoyable and peaceful.
