Great view of the countryside, south China sea, and skyline from the trail. Be sure to take plenty of water, the majority of the hike is in the sun.

we started hiking from the entrance of dragon's back, the whole hiking journey took abt 2hrs. The view is quite scenic just that the weather is really too hot!! There are some rocky paths along the trail, make sure u wear comfortable shoes :)

If you have done all the standard touristy attractions in HK then I recommend to do the Dragon's back hiking. It is a nice walk through the mountains with a nice view of both sides of the peninsula which finishes at an organized beach where you can take dive in the ocean, do a bit of surfing and have some...

My journey to the peak was uneventful and much like other reviewers. However I must be one of the only people to have actually not made it to Big wave bay!! My partner and I reached the peak and experienced the beautiful views along the way. We then took a wrong turn (as we didn't do much research) when we... More

great hike with super views of beautiful beaches. We started at the end and hiked up until we got a good view and then went back down, that way it was a shorter adventure. Easy bus stop available

We started the hike from the MTR, which wound around the cemetery. Not the fittest of the group I was lagging behind but the actual Hike was a pretty breezy stroll up the mountain. We were greeted by the crisp, fresh breeze and stunning views. The juxtaposition of the apartment blocks and the rolling valley reminded us that we were... More

A nice weekend walk. Start at Cape Collinson Cemetary then it is an easy walk upto the top ridge. From there its a nice walk along the Dragons back, max one hour. You can turn off north and go to Big Wave Bay for lunch ( only a few basic restaurants), or carry on to the end of the ridge... More

Very good hike spending about 2 to 2.30 hours starting from "To Tei Wan" to Big Wave Bay. It can be reached by taking mini green bus from MTR Shau Kei Wan. The green bus can be found opposite the bus terminal at MTR Shau Kei Wan exit A3. You can also choose to ride bus #9 at the bus... More

Dragon back is one of the most popular local hikes. It is a hike suitable for 2 to 82 with breathtaking views all the way along. The hike takes about 2 hours for average adult. Do prepare yourself with plenty of water and a hat. 80% of the time there is no shade.
