Hiking Dragon's Back is a great idea when visiting Hong Kong. There are multiple entry spots to start the hike, allowing you to pick how long you really want to go. I prefer to start from the Chai Wan MTR station, through the cemetery and onto the path. This hike is very busy on weekends and days with great weather.... More

It took couples of hour to reach the peak. I took the first bus and arrived the start point around 8AM. I took the way that ended at big wave beach. Around 11.00, I returned to the bus station, it was really crowded. So I guessed the early you start, the better.

Most people view HK as a city of concrete, jammed with skyscrapers, traffic and people (which it is!), but don't realize its special geography and climate. Dragon's Back offers a glimpse into the city's natural beauty. The hike is easy to medium and is as nice as it gets, with views of ocean, islands, hills, etc. For visitors who want... More

When we first moved to Hong Kong in 2014, Dragon's back was the first trail we hiked and we liked it a lot! We recommended it to our friends from Thailand and Singapore when they wanted to hike here. The view is so spectacular and not too difficult for amateurs. No equipment needed, just water and good sport shoes.

This place is under my list for years. Even I come to HK many times, I did not have chance to do it. Until last weekend, weather forecast said it will be shower and thunderstorm but I decided to go anyway. Fortunately, there is no rain at all for whole day. Anyhow, it was foggy at the peak, Although, I... More

This was a great day. We had great weather and though very hot, thoroughly enjoyed our walk, ending up at Big Wave Bay for a cool swim. Great scenery you could easily miss if you don't take the time to explore this side of Hong Kong Island.

Whata great way to loose some weight and enjoy the scenery and fresh air. Unfortunately it can be used for hiking and mountain biking so sometimes not so convenient for the hikers.

A perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. This charming coastline and villages are best viewed from the Dragons back. After a steep opening climb, the trail soon meanders across the top of the ridge offering spectacular views

It's easy access to get there. The track is not as difficult as I thought, but I really enjoy the tracking. If you have more time after you reaching the end of dragon's back, you can continue another 1km to get down to the beach. Be careful of summer time, A LOT OF PEOPLE, like really crowded. Overall, worth the... More

From the bus stop, it's a one kilometer hike up to the trailhead. It was the hardest one kilometer of the whole hike! Once you're up, the trail is pretty flat with a few uphill pushes. This is surely easy for someone who hikes a lot... But it was challenging for a healthy but unathletic individual like me. 1st kilometer:... More
