The walk started with lots of climbing of steps through the cemetery. The weather was good and the views from the top was totally worth it.

Great views along the ~3 mile hike. Points in the jungle and on the edge of a cliff. Grab the bus at the end to get yourself a deserved cold beer

Moderate to difficult hike. Rewarding view at the top. Fresh and breathtaking air. Hike during the winter period. Summer is brutal here

We took the kids for a 6km walk over the Dragons back while visiting Hong Kong. A great walk with some uphills and downhill. We took the "slightly overgrown path" over Mt Collinson. This was a fabulous walk in the jungle. The junction is some hundred meters from the Dragons back peak to the right and marked with red stripes.... More

Take the Metro line out and then a bus with tremendous views will drop you across from the starting point. Wasn't much signage ahead of time, but fortunately a couple of other riders appeared ready to go hiking, so I jumped off after them. Once across the street, the trail ascends briefly, and is well signed. Had fantastic weather, even... More

The Dragon's Back is a walk of about 3 miles giving awesome views of the coast of Honk Kong and Shek O in particular. There is a fair climb to start with but it is well worth the effort.

Took kids on this hike frequently while living in HK. Pretty easy with only a few areas of incline. Finished by catching bus at end of trail into Skek-o for Thai food.

The Dragon's Back is a great place to do some trekking. We did the route from the start all the way to the Big Wave Bay Beach. It was about 8.5km. The initial section was mainly a climb, and then going from hill to hill with ups and downs. You will eventually come to a part where you can either... More
