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. Make sure to get bus nr 9...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

This is a fairly easy hike trail. It's mostly uphill from the beginning with no shelters and you would be able to get a good view of Shek O Wan. Then it will be downhill with plenty of shades from the trees. Pretty cooling and...More

I hiked Dragons back with my partner and some of our friends. The hike itself isn’t too challenging, but the views were pretty amazing! It was quite foggy on the day we went, but on a clear day the views must be stunning! It’s easy...More

This is a great hike and demanding climb depending on your physical conditioning! The views from the top of the main spur is fantastic! I can get a little crowded on the trail, but well worth the climb!

Dragon's back is one of the toughest hike in Hong Kong and takes about 3-4 hours to reach to the top and it is very hard.

There are toilets at the start of the trail but it is quite busy so not really any secluded areas. The stairs are quite challenging, there are lots of them( over 200) but you can take your time with lots of rest areas. I... More

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... More
