I wanted to see a bit of the nature of Hong Kong while I was here so booked myself a guided hike along the Dragon's Back. To be honest I could probably have done the hike without a guide as it's a well used path and there is good signposting - the only bits that aren't too well marked are... More

I've been to this hike a couple of times and it has always been amazing! It gets crowded during the weekends so try to do it on weekdays if you can! Trails are clean and signs are clear, so don't worry about getting lost. Great hike for beginners! A visit to ShekO village before or after is a must!

Went here for a hiking, a big change to normal shopping and eating trip in hongkong. Be sure to bring lots of water. the terrain is not hard but the humid weather of hongkong easily wears you out. The view from the hiking trail is very beautiful and worth the effort.

All of the directions and instructions provided by TAs were spot on and it was easy to get to the start of the hike. Take the MTR to Shau Kei Wan station and then from there take Bus 9 to To Tei Wan bus stop (the bus displays the next bus stop so it's pretty easy but if in doubt,... More

We decided to do this moderate difficulty hike to Dragon's Back to spend some time outdoors and to mix city stuff with some nature stuff during our short stay in HK. I think its a fun to do! If you are sick of the crowds, you can spend about half a day on this activity. The path has a trail... More

Very easy to get to the starting point. Hop off the MTR at Shau Kai Wan. Bus number 9 takes you to the starting point. Easy hike up the hills. A mixture of rocks and stairs that are slowly eroding away with every down pour. Follow signs for "Dragons back /Hong Kong trial" and not for "the gap". A part... More

This was the first time I went hiking and I loved it. The hike will take about 2,5-3 hours and around 3,5 hours if you take breaks often. At the beginning there are a few steep parts, but if you can walk a few stairs without a problem, you're fine. Make sure to bring at least 1,5 liter water and... More

This was one of the most beautiful hikes closeby Hong Kong. Make sure to start at Shek O Road and take a direction towards Big Wave beach - you'll end up in a little paradise. There is nothing better than refreshing swim after few hours hike!

Dragon's Back is one of the best hikes in Hong Kong! The views are great and the option to end at the beach is a huge advantage. It's not the toughest hike in the area, though, so if you are looking for something difficult, check out The Twins.
