Pak Hok Shan (Chinese: 白鶴山) is a small hill in the northern part of the Kowloon peninsula in Hong Kong. It is 77 m in height. The Hong Kong Chinese Christian Churches Union Cemetery is located on this hill.

History [ edit ]

The hill was the site of a mine on the Kowloon Peninsula, as mining was a booming industry in the area in the 19th century. The walls of Kowloon Walled City were partly made from stones extracted from this hill.[1]
