Solid workout with an amazing view!
Jan 2020
This is a hike for experienced walkers/hikers in good health. We travel the world and do most of our site seeing walking around and even we were sore for days after this hike. We have never gotten a guide before and while he was great, probably wouldn’t do it again. If you are in a large group and/or not comfortable walking without actually having a plan or knowing where you'll end up then I highly recommend getting a guide. The views along this hike are breathtaking and it ends at the beach. It was well worth the few days of approaching stairs with utter disdain!

beautiful!
May 2019 • Friends
This is a beautiful hike close to the city. We like it a lot! amazingly, we owned the whole trail today! yay! It was raining hard but it cleared up so we didn't miss the highlights. We had so much fun walking in the rain! glad it's not cold season though! This is very easy for an experienced hiker like me but a little bit stressful for people whose never hiked before. I was with 3 healthy (non-hiker) teens and they got soo tired! Our guide today was Tristan. He was fun and helpful! We're so happy and comfortable with him all the way! Good Job! Tristan! and Thank You! - from all of us! Connie, Trixie, Bless and Keanna

Great Afternoon, Fantastic Hike, Perfect Ending
Mar 2019 • Couples
We took this afternoon hike in late March with our guide, Rory. We had a group of 6 total, mostly young but by no means only outdoorsy people. The first 20 minutes of the hike were walking uphill, but I wouldn't classify it as too challenging for anyone in even casual shape. The rest of the hike is easy and full of amazing views. We ended down at a little beach area and drank beers/ate a snack before taking a short bus back to the MTA. It was a fantastic afternoon and a beautiful contrast to the busy nature of the city. 10/10 would recommend.

Great day out with Alex
The dragon back hike was challenging & fun, with beautiful views as the reward. As a solo traveler I'm l glad I did it as part of a group through Wild Hong Kong. Alex our guide was excellent. It was a hot day for a hike and he was very patient and caring towards the hikers that were having difficulties.
I'd only advise attempting this tour if you're an active person as it can be challenging with the initial 1km up hill and with the unpredictable weather the heat can add to the challenge.
