Approximately 15 meters tall, the Amah Rock is located on a hilltop within the Lion Rock Country Park in southwest Sha Tin and is accessible via a short hike, it is a popular hikers’ destination, and a symbol to the infinite patience, loyalty and faithfulness of all the waiting wives.

Amah Rock resembles a woman carrying a baby on her back, according to legend it is the petrified remains of a fisherman’s wife standing at that spot waiting for her drowned husband to return from the sea. In reward for her faithfulness she was turned into a rock immortalizing her love, by the Goddess of the Sea so that her spirit could unite with that of her husband.

From the Amah Rock, you will be able to see urban Kowloon, Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong Island on a clear day!
