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. We took bus 9...More

Using the wonderful MTR and a local bus, this walk was a wonderful break from the frenzy that is Hong Kong. Around 4 miles, trainers suffice.

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

After being dropped off by a public bus, we hiked the trail up to the top of Dragon's Back. It was a weekday, late in the day, so there were few people around. It is very popular on the weekends, but it was very quiet...More
