Indian Rubber trees on Victoria Peak

Indian Rubber trees (ficus elastica 印度榕) are quite common in Hong Kong, but these few besides the hills along Lugard Road on Victoria Peak are magnificent in their presence. They are not just big, they are huge, with aerial roots that occupy more space than most Hong Kong apartments.

Check out their splendour and majesty, especially the “Old and valuable” member that grows across the road to form a tunnel.
