This hike gives you a great view of Hong Kong's fancy areas (stanley bay road etc) The trail is well designated with a good amount of space to cater for busy days. There are a lot of picture / video moments, even suitable for young children to do the hike. On the way down, the terrain is flat and goes... More

The hike was very beautiful and gave a great view of the ocean, but if you are hiking for the view, there are many others in Hong Kong that offer better ones (ex. Sunset Peak or Lions Rock). The hike is half on top of the mountain, and half completely covered by trees and dirt paths. It is not very... More

Hong Kong is very busy. A lot to do. As soon as you take the right subway exit you can reach this hike. No one around- Nature and yourself. Great time to calm down and have a relax.

We picked the Easter weekend to do this hike, so it was quite busy. But, the weather was perfect with sunny, clear skies and a welcome cooling breeze. The hike begins on the Shek O road (easy to get to using the #9 bus from Shau Kai Wan MTR to To Tei Wan stop) The hike starts with a short... More

We did this hike, and ended up on a beach. It's moderate level of fitness is required and mixes up a sun, forest, miuntains and water views. Take a taxi from subway station.

Having read about the Dragon's Back, we thought we could pay a visit. We started at To Tei Wan which was a steep hike up to the top. Once at the top do not be mislead by the distances shown! Going back the way we came up seemed shorter, however, we bumped into a couple of locals who told us... More

little travel needed to get there, but worth the views and hike. It is full sun so summer will mean sunscreen, hats and water. But the sea views will give you a new perspective on HK

Dragon's Back is the most popular hike on HK island. It offers breathtaking views of the sea and beaches. It's part of the Hong Kong Trail (section 8), which can represent the first or last section of the total trail, depending on where you'll start it. It can also represent an excellent choice for a day hike including Dragon's Back... More

Make sure you know exactly how to get here or you might end up lost. We started at the end that was a pretty vertical climb but took you straight to the awesome views. I think the more traditional route would be to start from the end that is mostly covered and gradual and then do the steep decent rather... More

Take a walk in the morning hours, before it gets too hot (in the summer), do it on a sunny day to get breath taking views of Hong Kong Island South.
