Although this route isn't all flat and smooth, it is easy enough for those who isn't quite experienced in hiking. The views were just marvellous! Make sure you bring a good hat/cap/scarf on a windy day thou.

Out tour from our ship arranged a hike on this up and down trail on Hong Kong Island. We ended a a nice beach and had a picnic lunch. This is a tough hike so wear your tennis shoes.

Wear your walking shoes! It's not all flat and down hill, but even as an unexperienced walker, it is a fun and not so heavy hike around the hills. Lots of "stairs", they could call it the Dragon's Staircase if you might. But what a view and what a sight. Please go on a weekday. Even on a Tuesday, there... More

Better go there and hear it, it's a view, not a real back of a real dragon, but includes a heritage story that you are being told there.

Easy hike, perfect for a spontaneous trip. Despite being underprepared, the hike was very rewarding with amazing view. Route recommendation: Shek o - Dragons back - big wave bay. This will end your trail at an amazing beach.

We walked Dragon Back in April - its starting to get hot and humid, so we weren't sure whether to do it. We picked a day when rain was possible, which made it not so hot. It didn't rain until right at the end so it was perfect. We did it with a 13 year old and 15 year old,... More

Really enjoyed this hike but can get very busy. Finished hike at the beach which was great for a refreshment and swim. Views were great.

We finished up this hike in about 3 hours or so. It's not super difficult, but it isn't easy either. The first hour kicks your butt as you incline. its mostly rocky, but the views at the top are great. It was hot and sunny when we went, and people were parasailing right off the edge of the mountain! I'll... More

Great hike that is super close to the city. Best to start on the Shek O side and finish the day on the Big Wave Bay side with a swim and cold Dragons Back Beer - IPA at the beach kiosk. If you go on a weekend start early because there will be lots of locals and tourists walking very... More

This walk was relatively easy, there is a bit of uphill but nothing too bad. You first have to get to the beginning of the walk. Catch the MTR to Shau Kei Wan Station, Exit A then walk to Shau Kei Wan Bus Terminus. Take bus no 9. to Shek O. Knowing where to get off was a bit unknown... More
