    Default Hong Kong Dragon's Back Trail

    Hi,

    I am going to Hong Kong end of the Nov. I am planning of doing the Dragon's Back Trail. Can anyone advise where to start and how I should go about doing it ?

    I did a search on the net but there are just too many variation where to start and how to go there?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi,

    I did that while on business trip over a weekend in early 2000.

    Couldn't recall much ... hope some members based in HK could be of help ... but ... some early pointers since you have 60 views and no feedback...

    (a) get the "Hong Kong Walks" booklet either from the tourist office at Suntec Tower 2 or the HKTA in HK

    (b) do it over the weekend ... although it's one of the easiest trail, it's still easy to take a wrong turn along the way (which I almost) ... on weekends, you have more people doing the trail so you could just "tack along" abeit at your own pace

    (c) give yourself a day ... say you set off by bus from Central at 7am ... reach the starting point at 8am latest ... hike for 2-3 hrs to the peak .... exit trail to main road and take a bus to their nearest town Shek-O (if my memory serves me right) for lunch ... and then a bus all the way back to HK central by 2-3pm latest.

    I am sorry but that's all I recall at this moment.

    i nearly wanted to do this trail during my HK trip last sept... but in the end i decided to go Lantau island instead since its my first time there.

    as mention by yyD70S, u can go to suntec, to HK tourism board office to get more info.

    alternatively you also can email them for assistance:

    and it is advisable to bring along some warm clothings if you are going in the
    winter months....it's awfully cold and windy up there.
