Dragon's Back Trail

Adventurous hiking on Hong Kong Island

Hong Kong 113 Booked

Climb mountain ridges and hike forest trails on arguably the best hike on Hong Kong Island

  • Hike up mountains for a great alternative view of Hong Kong Island
  • Trek down to the perfect white sands of Tai Long Bay
  • Have a break for swimming or a surfing, or just relax on the beach
What We Love:

Arguably the most picturesque hike on Hong Kong Island, the Dragon's Back is a classic trail that takes in many of Hong Kong's lesser known surroundings. From mountain ridges and secluded forrest trails, to the white sands of Tai Long Bay, it's no surprise the Dragon's Back trail was named by Time Magazine as Asia's best urban hike. First navigate the dragon-like peak from which the mountain got its name and then descend down to the beautiful white sands of Tai Long Bay where you can have a swim or even sport some surfing. Finish the day's hike by enjoying a nourishing meal and refreshing beverage - the perfect way to cap off an awesome day!

Our guide was Rory, the Scotties-Kiwi (HK-Born) gentleman. His knowledge on Dragon's back trail was amazing and he's very patient with the slower hikers. He would keep up with their paces but slowly managed to get them to speed up (unconsciously). Good job Rory !!!


The weather was perfect so overall an excellent and fun trip with out amazing tour guide! He shares interesting facts about the area, which other areas are good for hiking & which fun activities to do here in HK. Being in a hiking group of 6 people, we felt very safe. We would definitely book other Klook Hiking activities again! :-)


It's wonderful to be able to do a trail hike with such easy access from the city. Awesome views even from the start of the trail. Prasad, my guide, offers safety tips along the hike which are useful for a beginner like me. This trail hike is not easy for an average fitness person like me, but it's doable and with no rush of time, I made it to the peak! A personal achievement and I'm encouraged to do more trail walks/hikes in Hong Kong for future visits. The end of Dragon's Back trail continues to Tai Long Wan (Big Wave Beach) which is beautifully unspoilt and has some amazing rock formation too.


The trail itself would have been a good one. It wasn't overly strenuous, but was a good combination of workout and nice views for a recreational hiker. But...it was so, so crowded. Have never seen anything like it. I would not recommend going on a weekend. The guide was pleasant enough but didn't really guide; he put us in a taxi to the trailhead (four adults squeezed into the back of a standard size taxi for a 20 minute ride) and then got out and started walking. There weee four of us in the group and we pretty much policed ourselves in terms of staying together. Anyway, it was very "ok" and I'm glad we did it, but definitely avoid weekends on a nice day. Or maybe start very early. By the time we got to the trailhead it was about noon.


Starting the trail at 11am means being under the direct afternoon sun - make sure you bring a cap, shades and lots of water! The actual trail on dragon's back isn't too strenuous, and we managed to catch a beautiful view of the city with clear blue skies.
