Nick and I were recommended to hike “Dragon’s Back” by locals people in Hong Kong, so we decided to give it a shot. It is easy to get to the start of the trail by public transit. Once there, you forget that you were just in a large city. At first you are met with a moderately steep incline until you reach the “dragon’s back” or the pinnacle of the mountain. From there you can see a breathtaking view of the coast and ocean as well as a glimpses of downtown. I especially liked that the hike ended at a Shek O Beach which wasn’t too crowded when we arrived. Jumping into the cool salty water felt great after a long day of hiking!
