Located at the south eastern part of Hong Kong Island, Shek O is a great place for any enthusiast seeking time away from the hustle bustle of Hong Kong's city life. Don't let the commercialisation, buildings around Shek O fool you cause the area is slated as a country park and due to its isolated location the place remained rustic... More

I highly recommend doing this walk. Travelling along the ridge of the mountain gives amazing views, then the forest track makes for a fun obstacle course if you jog/run down it, but also very scenic.

Easily accessible by buses, Dragon's Back will reward you with the magnificent view of beaches and hill slopes. The trek only takes 1 hour. Try to go early to avoid the heat. Bring sunglass and hat as there's no shade along the way.

We did teh 8km hike in 2.5 hours. It is strenuous and pls bring enough water as there is no stop or access to water during the hike. View is stunning and you end up in lovely sleepy big wave bay and can enjoy local food and a drink While watching the surfers. A special mini bus with special price... More

This trail is on the eastern part of Hong Kong Island, easily accessible with bus or taxi. I went there by bus, took the number 9 bus from Shau Kei Wan MTR station towards Shek O. Quick 15 mins bus ride and you can get off at the Dragon's trail start point. Trail itself is of easy to medium difficulty... More

Did this hike after visiting the Commonwealth War Cemetery (which is a short walk from a bus stop on the route to the trail head). The hike was not difficult - although the first half was demanding. The route is well marked and easy to follow. We did find the last part of the hike a bit boring (ie the... More

A nice short getaway from the hustle of the city. I was on business travel to Hong Kong, and went to Dragon's back on Saturday morning around 6.30 am. There was only me and 2 other people. It was a bit foggy since i went on March, during colder weather. It took me about 1.5 hours to finish the trail,... More

1 hour bus ride from HK. Good shoes, bottle of water, camera. Better entrance from top of Stanley, just follow a path nicely arranged even with stairs for the climbings

Love the feeling up there, the seaview was excellent with really great breeze. When there on a weekday and the crowd was not heavy which makes it even more enjoyable. Would definitely make a trip again if I am back in Hong Kong.

Everything was clearly signed and it was fairly easy to find our way up to Dragon's Back. The trail is self is good for a beginner and the hike to the top has a rewarding view of the city. Just be warned they are a lot of steps to get to the top, also don't forget to bring water, snacks... More
