The Dragon’s Back – an easy climb with sea and city views

EP 1 – Hong Kong’s Five Best Walks

The Dragon’s Back trail rightly makes all the top hiking lists for it’s easy access to the city, relatively gentle slopes and spectacular views. Try and get to the start before 9 AM and enjoy a morning stroll across the ridge before descending for lunch in Big Wave bay. With most of the heavy walking done, climb over one more hill in the afternoon, taking time to look back across the bay and then down into Chai Wan with views along Victoria harbor.

Start on Shek O Road taking bus no 9, follow the trail around to Big Wave bay. Then take the path at the north side of the beach up and over the hill to Chai Wan where you can take the MTR.
