A short ride away from Hong Kong busiest areas, Dragon's Back provides a relaxing hike for visitors wishing to escape the big city for a while. Long but not overly challenging, the undulating trail offers scenic vistas and peaceful natural surroundings. A viewing platform allows you to admire the coastline and spot paragliders. Bring walking shoes, lots of water, and don't forget your swimsuit if you want to take a dip at the well-maintained beach near the trail's end. Dragon's Back is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Hong Kong Edition.

  • Good track to explore. And, you can start from Tu Gua Wan and walk towards the Big Wave Beach and enjoy the blissful and wonderful view.
  • Best hike and views in HK! A must do in HK. A little far but its' worth it. You get to see people hiking and also wind surfers. It's not too crowded, and you can get some food afterwards nearby.
  • The Dragon's Back is one of the best walks in Hong Kong, providing panoramic views once you touch the summit. It is not an easy walk, but stimulating! Recommend to every visitor who likes hiking when they visit Hong Kong!
  • went there twice and both times sweated like a pig. the views alone the hike is awesome as you feel like you're standing above the whole of hk island. the traffic isnt great though as it takes an mtr ride plus another bus ride to get to the starting point. it's a bit too crowded during the hike too as it's a really popular route in hk you can have lunch at 华星冰室 after you finish. not bad! good to visit local eateries sometimes!
  • One of the best hikes on Hong Kong island. Great views and you can fun sh at the bus stop, Big Wave Bay or Sheko (a little more tricky and technically difficult). Hike is not a ffcult and even beginners / children (f they can walk the distance) could do it.
