Definitely Worth the Sweat

Great Hike in Hong Kong - good scenery, and isn't too strenuous - best thing is you can reach a really nice beach to cool off in the sea.

The dragon's back itself is lovely, a fairly easy hike and stunning views. However it was very short, and once you are past the back, there's a bit of woods, then some concrete with waterworks currently going on which felt pretty unauthentic. Made our way to Big Wave Beach then walked to Shek O. Neither are particularly interesting but there... More

It was a lovely hike up to the peak and a really rewarding view once we got up! Really worth a trip here - and you probably need it, with all the eating in hongkong!

The trail was relatively easy and filled with many vantage points to see the beautiful scenery :) Enjoyed the fresh air, nature, and just walking and chit chatting :) A different side of Hong Kong I had not seen before and thoroughly enjoyed! :)

This must be the most popular hike in Hong Kong, and for good reason. It's nice and easy for most people, anyone who can walk unaided and have a modicum of fitness will be fine, just be aware that it's a trail not a walk, it's around 8km and has a few steps, hills and uneven footing, but it's definitely...

Instead of taking bus no. 9 to Dragon's Back from Shau Kei Wan, I prefer to go running from Quarry Bay > Mt Butler > Shek O Road > Dragon's Back. Total is 14.5km. It takes us 2.30hrs to finish. The whole route is really pleasant with great views of ocean, beaches and mountains.

Dragon's back is easily one of the most googled hikes in Hong Kong and understandably so. Its suitable for beginners new to hiking. Mind you, you will definitely work out a sweat, you are still climbing a mountain afterall, but it is manageable to say the least. On a non-foggy day, the scenery is rewarding and you can even catch... More

For those who aren't active, the hike may be a slight challenge as you'll expect to climb lots of stairs and at times treading over very steep and uneven surfaces. It's definitely worth the time when u get up to the peak to take in the views.

Easy hike, awesome view, very windy. I went on the weekend which was quite crowded actually. If you go on a nice day it will definitely worth the hike!
