It was raining in the morning and we were hesitating to do this climb. The day was cloudy and visibility (of the view) poor. There was even a little drizzle when we reached the peak. We were happy that we came.

This hike is good for those who want to see a different side of HK - not the shops and crowds and restaurants. It is rated moderate, but there's a fair bit of climbing involved so the right shoes are essential, especially when going downhill....More
Do you ever yearn for a continuous flow of lactic acid in your leg muscles? This is the place to go!!
The Dragon's Back is a fantastic track of up, down, up, down, and none of it gentle, but not too hard either, because the...More
Great climb with a great weather! Can't help but to stop and enjoy the view and after a long walk, I decided to reward myself with a nice cold beer on the foot hill of the mountain. I must say the climb was worth the...More
The last day in Hong Kong we booked a hike of Dragon's Back. Even with lousy visibility due to foggy weather, it was such a great experience. Claudia our guide, from Walk Hong Kong, was outstanding. She was personable, informative and professional. She met us...More
My daughter and I put this hike off last year at our last visit to Hong Kong because most of the reviews said it was pretty difficult. So we attempted it this year. Dragon's back trail is easily reached by public transportation. We took a...More
The views are beautiful but loud people can ruin the experience. We went on Thursday morning and it was busy. Cannot imagine what it's like at the weekend as the Dragon's Back is a super popular HK trail.

Hi Royalpea, if you are comfortable carrying your child and have practiced on other hikes i would say ok, but i am not an expert in that department. It is a real hike on uneven dirt tracks not on a paved path. We had daypacks and umbrellas. It took us a few hours and there were a couple of resting spots, but not sheltered and only one porta loo at the beginning, then again just before we took the path down to the beach. There were toilets and showers down at the beach. Hope this helps alittle.
It depends on your tolerance for wind & cold. I think Jan could be on the cooler side, and when you're up on the peak, you're pretty much exposed to the elements. If you're only up there for a couple of minutes, then it... More
It depends on your tolerance for wind & cold. I think Jan could be on the cooler side, and when you're up on the peak, you're pretty much exposed to the elements. If you're only up there for a couple of minutes, then it could be fine. But if you plan to stay there to enjoy the view, take lots of photographs, etc, then it might make sense to wear long pants.
