Dragon's Back hike is not strenuous, but it does feel very long. Would recommend if you want an easy hike with a nice view...just make sure you go on a clear day.

Dragon's Back was an excellent hiking experience. The views from the upper levels of the trail were stunning, even on a relatively overcast day. There were lots of coastal communities that we could look down on. We were also way above the high-rise apartment buildings...More

Overall a must try... Wear good shoes for hiking and bring a hat to shield yourself from the sun as most areas are not sheltered by vegetation. One of the hidden gems of wild Hong Kong! Where else in the world can you see skyscrapers...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... More
