I stopped to do this walk en route to London, with my daughter. It is a very challenging walk straight up from the Cape Collinson crematorium - not at all well-sign posted for English speakers, thus only the 4 stars. However once you get up...More

For the novice hiker, Dragon's Back is a must! I have taken the kids (10 and 6) and they were able to navigate it easily given the well-placed signage. It is very hot in the summer so the winter months are the best time to...More

One of the easiest and best hikes in HK. Recommend to do it backwards (take minibus from Shau Kei Wan station, exit A2) and ask the driver to stop at the ‘end’ of the trail. The hike is about 2 hours or less. Great views...More

Loved this hike! Hong Kong is surrounded by so much beauty, it was nice to get away from the city for a few hours. Accessed via MTR, climbed through a cemetery, and a few hours in shade and then a ridge line. Fantastic views from...More

When you think of Hong Kong , it's all about food, the busy city and the shopping and markets. Don't forget that there are amazing islands that are totally beautiful. This hike is awesome, the 1st km is a tiny bit hard but it's not...More
