2 travellers
One of the finest hikes in Hong Kong, the Dragon's Back is a classic trail that combines many of the area's finest attributes. From mountain ridges and sheltered forest trails to the white sands of Big Wave Bay, it's no surprise that Dragon's Back has been hailed as Asia's best urban hike.
  • A guided, small-group hike of Dragon's Back trail in Hong Kong
  • Discover Asia's best urban hike in a safe and informative setting
  • Enriching commentary from your guide
  • Enjoy free time to surf and swim at Big Wave Bay
What to Expect
The tour will begin at Shau Kei Wan MTR station, where you’ll meet your guide and the rest of the group. Hiking tours are capped at small numbers, so you’ll be guaranteed a personalized day out. It’s also a year-round hike, perfect for all weather conditions.
Navigating the undulating ridge that gives this classic hike its name, you’ll climb gently skyward across tree-lined trails and winding mountain paths. Your guide will be on hand to give you background information while you walk and ready to supply interesting commentary on the history of the region.
As you slowly mount the trail, you’ll be rewarded with sensational bird’s-eye views of Hong Kong island, including the famous Dragon’s Back itself as seen from up above. From there, you’ll descend down to the white sands and turquoise waters of Tai Long Wan (Big Wave Bay). Enjoy free time to relax on the beach, grab a lunch nearby, or don a swimsuit and hop into the water before heading back with your guide to the metro station.
