Dragons Back Trek

File_000 (180)

Many people think of Hong Kong as all smog and skyscrapers however you don’t have to venture too far out of the city to find a great outdoor life. We had an excellent trek with awesome views when we  walked the final 8 km section of the 50 km Hong Kong trail. The trek takes its name from the profile of the hill which resembles a dragons back!

Getting to the start of the Dragons Back trek

  1. Find your way to Shau Kei Wan MTR station
  2. Take Exit A1 and turn right. The bus terminal is immediately behind the MTR station.
  3. Find bus number 9 towards Shek O. These buses take cash only and the cost in May 2016 was HKD $8 each (approx £0.70).
  4. Ask the driver to stop at To Tei Wan stop which is the start of the hike. The bus journey takes around 20 minutes.

We ended our 8 km trek at Big Wave Bay where you can catch bus number 9 back to the MTR station.
