The majority of Hong Kong’s landscape consists of steep, undeveloped mountains and hills, which fall steeply to the coast. Hong Kong’s uplands form a pattern of ridges and valleys running for the most part, in a northeast to east/north-east direction. 

The best hikes in Hong Kong offers various landscapes. Exploring the territory will give you a great break from the bustling weekday life. 

The most famous trail is the Dragon’s Back HikeIt offers enchanting views over the rugged coast and beautiful beaches of Hong Kong Island. 

The trail ends at a popular beach, where you can stop for a well-earned swim and a bite to eat before returning to Central Hong Kong just a half-hour away. 

The hike takes between two and three hours to complete, depending on how busy the trail is on the day of your hike. 

From the ridge, you can gaze out over the lovely crescent-shaped Shek O Beach, and further on, the beach at Big Wave Bay. In the opposite direction, you can look out over a tranquil bay dotted with yachts.
