There are many approaches one can take to hike the famous Dragon's Back route. This is a favorite, starting at Chai Wan MTR and finishing at Shek O Beach.
Wan Chai Cemetery, The Dragon's Back
Our tour begins at the corner of Wan Tsui Road and Ling Shing Road, which is near Chai Wan MTR station on the eastern end of the Blue Island Line.
To get to the start of the tour, exit the station via Exit E. We will need to cross a few streets via the overpass bridge. While exiting through exit E, veer left on the bridge, and continue over the road to enter a small mall.
Walk into the mall. At the first fork stay left. Keep walking past a set of stairs and a small alley on the left. At the next fork, go left towards Wan Tsui Shopping Centre. This takes you onto another overpass bridge, this time over Wan Tsui Road.
When you reach the end of the overpass, go left down the stairs. At the bottom, double-back and make your way to the red metal barrier on the corner of Ling Shing and Wan Tsui Roads, where we will start our ascent.
Places to stop along the way:
