HONGKONG FREE AND EASY : Dragon's back


Hongkong is not just about shopping and eating. For this trip, it was more of an excursion for my niece so there is very little time allocated to shopping. There are ample places for trekking. For people who want to take a break from city, do some exercise (burn off the fats) and also get some fresh air. There is a great view of Shek  and Big Wave Bay


To get there, take the From MTR Shau Kei Wan Station Exit A3, take bus 9 at Shau Kei Wan Bus Terminus to To Tei Wan, Shek O Road
It was quite easy to reach there as this is the stop where most people get off.


It was my first trek. Will not say is a difficult trek. There are some some dirt treks and some are proper stairs but with no railings.  The trek is usually spacious enough for both direction of the traffic. My brother keep pestering me to go at a faster pace as my 7-year old niece is so full of energy. She has no problem conquering all the slopes and stairs. We finish reach the peak and came down in around 3-4 hours.

There are no convenience stores and much toilets. Bring your own water and snacks. There is a market and some shops at Shau Kei Wan Bus Terminus
The weather was a bit gloomy when I was there. The photos turn out a bit dull. On the other hand, it was not sunny but windy so the trek was enjoyable.

It is a good place to go to burn off some of the fats from all the eating, get some fresh air and see a different part of hongkong. 

For more information:
There is supposed to be an ending point and a nice village. The ending point is near to Wan Chai But we just walked back after reaching the peak, as my parents will waiting at base. It was too tough for them.
