Not too challenging, a decent hike. A couple of small lakes on the way up. Mostly touristy people here. Great views from the top!

If you enjoy fresh air fabulous views and moderate exercise this walk is for you . Planning this walk can be confusing the geography is complicated and in fact there are several ways to attempt the dragons back. The HK tourist office in the arrival area ( before you leave the secure area) has a great free publication on hiking... More

As other reviews say, it easy to get to the trail by public transport, and the walk is really good, especially if you have just spent 24 hours or so trapped in an aeroplane! Take half a day and be sure to do it - the change from the crowded bustling city just a mile or two away is amazing.... More

We took the number 9 bus and the driver advised us where the start point was for the shorter of the 2 walks. The first km or so is uphill, mostly steps cut into the hill. It's not too difficult if you take your time. The route then takes you across the summit of the hills - the Dragon's Back... More

Public transport to the track head is both cheap and convenient, and the views from the top are pleasant on a clear day. Worth a visit if you have a few hours to spare. The walk up is not very difficult either.

Before setting up for the Dragon's Back consider visiting the Tourism Board Office at the Star Ferry Pier - it's good to have a map of the whole trail at hand. Do not rely 100% on the hiking information contained in the leaflets though: it's written the trail is approx. 8,5 km and takes around 6 hours. If you are... More

We read lots of great reviews on Trip Advisor and many other websites and knew this was something we could not miss while we were in HK. We went on a sunny weekend in late March. We started at the trail at To Tei Wan (MTR to Shau Kei Wan. Exit A3 to get to the Bus Terminus. NWFB Bus... More

We went on a weekday afternoon while the weather was unpredictable. The place was quite deserted, and we only met a few fellow hikers along the way. However despite the intermittent drizzling, strong wind and often muddy tracks, we made it to Shek O Peak. We couldn't see any scenery because of the fog, so made our way back to... More
