This is a relatively easy hike and suitable for most ages on the east of Hong Kong island. The open views along the top are absolutely stunning and you can often see paragliders along the way. I recommend checking out the weather forecast (My Observatory is the go-to in HK) before heading over - this is a hike with views... More

Take the bus from the second last station of the metro going in the direction of Sheik oh. Then get on bus 9 and get out at the first stop nearby the trail. According to the map you are walking the trail backwards, but believe us, this is better! This way you walk up at stairs and slightly upwards in... More

The Dragon's back is probably one of the easiest trek in Hong Kong. It offers an amazing view on Stanley. You better go in the morning to avoid the crowd. It can be done in 1h30 / 2h30 depending of your path. It's fun to do ..

Make sure you try to do this on a cooler cloudy day. We did it last week no problem and it was definitely worth it. The first uphill climb is only 15 mins then you walk along the spine of the dragon for 30 mins. As you start to drop down on the other side you can choose to go... More

The view is amazing and it is a quite nice hike. You can decide to go to beach after the hike so it's really nice experience you can have in Hong Kong. I suggest that you try the hike if you are planning to spend a lot of time in Hong Kong. It is still going to take you around... More

Great hike, amaaaazing view. lovely and breathtaking. You don't need to be superfit to enjoy the hike... although you might enjoy it more without all the wheezing and panting. It was well worth it, as the journey is scenic and enjoyable. Stay safe when hiking :)

It was great to get out of the city and experience the wonderful views. The hike itself is easy and very doable. You get some great panoramic views and the opportunity to breathe some fresh air. At the end, you can hike down to a beach right near by if you want some beach and swim time!

My husband and I are frequent hiker, hence we have decided to do something different in Hong Kong besides the eating and shopping. We picked Dragon's back because of the nice view from the peak. We departed early in the morning at 730am from Jordan by MTR, and we arrived around 830am in Shau Kei Wan station. By the time... More

A friend told me about Dragons Back and it was a highlight of my stay. The walk end to end (finished at Tai Long Wan Beach AKA Big Wave Beach) took about two hours from Tei Wan bus stop on Shek O rd (Bus #9). Whilst there were a few hills and slippery rocks it was a fairly moderate climb.... More
