An easy trek up to the top. Bring a snack along just to have a break and enjoy the sight from up above. Paragliding activities pepper the sky and makes for an excellent photo... read more

If you get a clear day in Hong Kong definitely go up here. (or conversely if you want to work off a hangover) It's a perfect little Hike thats not too intense (although don't wear sandals) and the view is breathtaking.

It is a short hike up, views were great and is extremely accessible. Directions were clear. It got really windy at the top so make sure you're wearing something windproof. The time to destination on the road signs however were not very reliable.

wonderful hike! the trail is well marked and easy to hike. the views are wonderful. it's hard to believe that one is in Hong Kong, easy to access. we took bus 9 to To Tei Wan, hiked to Big Wave Beach, walked to Shek O and took bus 9 back. Took us most of the day -- it was wonderful!

The weather was a bit cloudy but we still had some good views. The hike itself is a moderate level - some steep sections but well within capabilities of anyone with reasonable fitness levels. very enjoyable and takes about 2 hours.

This is a great chilled hike on the island, easily accessible with public transport (bus drops you off by the trail start) offering great views throughout. The surface is proper terrain rather than paved path / stairs and given its accessibility, difficulty level (easy / moderate) and popularity, it is a great hike to do alone or with a group... More

I was told by friends to either choose the Dragon's Back or Sai Kung route, with the former being relatively easy and more manageable for a solo hike. The route up was really easy, and the views up Dragon's Back absolutely beautiful on a sunny day! You'll get a bird's eye view of the coastal areas bordering the South China... More

The Dragon's Back trail is a moderate up-and-down hike with excellent views of the ocean and the village of Shek-O. Nice change of pace if you feel like you've been in metro Hong Kong too long and want to see some natural beauty.

This hike is awesome, firstly because it's super easy to get to via local bus, which drops you right at the trail head. The hike itself is not too challenging but offers really nice views of the water the whole time, and it is real terrain rather than stairs. It takes about 2-3 hours to arrive at the beach, which...
