Went with three friends in April. Accidentally went on a weekend so the bus ride there took a while as it is also on the way to the beach Big Wave Bay. It was a great hike though with some incredible views. Do your research before on how to get there and how long you'd like to hike but it... More

From Shau Kei Wan MTR station, take bus 9 down from the bus terminal. If you're lucky you'll see other hikers on the bus, get off where they get off. Follow the signs after that, there's only one path and rarely when the path splits into two, there will be more signs so that you're never lost. Views are stunning,... More

The Dragon's Back is a hidden gem of Hong Kong. It is a relatively easy hike after the initial 30 min uphill walk. Once you get to the top, you can enjoy the remarkable views of Hong Kong's nature. I highly recommend packing your swimmers as the hike ends at Shek O beach. There are a few small local restaurants... More

Loved the views and the elevated paths. The climb is not too bad - in all not too challenging if you like a hike.

Being adventurous, my boyfriend and I embarked on this trail on the second-last day of our trip. We took the MTR all the way to Chai Wan, and walked the bridge onto Lin Shing Road, and made our way up through the cemetery. You can also reach this place via MTR to Shau Kei Wan, and then taking bus 9.... More

I am not an experienced hiker, but this was very nice. It has some variance, with more rugged terrain at the start and a walk in the woods at the end. I walked through to the shoreline, what was very nice. Looking back and seeing where I started, I felt proud of myself!

It's not a piece of cake, yet not gonna kill you either. A very pleasant medium difficulty hike close to the city with amazing view. Once you get to the top of the hill, you'll know the 1000 steps are totally worth it.

It is easily accessible by public transport. Just take the MTR to the Sau Kei Wan Station and take Bus No. 9 at the bus terminal and alight at To Tei Wan stop. You will be right at the start of the hike. We took about one and a half hours to reach the peak and another two and a... More

Dragon's Back is a great hike- even when it is hot out since there is a nice breeze for most of the hike. Views are great and the path is easy to follow and not too steep
