I've done this hike a couple of times. It's a good length with some nice views. Get a bus towards Shek O from Sheung Wan and get off at To Tei Wan, there are steps up to the trail and it's something like 6km-8km hike from there to Big Wave Bay.

There were lots of people on the day we went given it was a public holiday but it was still very enjoyable. A great half day trip. Getting to the top was o my about a quarter of the walk with the descent taking the longest. Bring your own water and towel! Perfect sadly was finishing in Shek O for... More

A nice 2 hour hike, the views are lovely. It's one of the easiest hikes on the Island. You come down to Big Wave bay or can carry onto to Shek O beach where you can get great Thai food or even hire out a BBQ pit that has everything included! Just bring your swimmers!

Good long morning's walk, but once you get up, it undulates with gradual ascents/descents along the ridge. Path can be a bit slippery when it's wet, and the wind can howl up there, so even on a sunny day, you'll need to take some protection. Trail is well marked with markers, so no worries about getting lost. And plenty of... More

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

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
