Dragon’s Back Walk ( Shek O Country Park to To Tei wan Village stop) – Easy

Sometimes you don’t want to hike up peaks or hills; but you want to be amongst the greens and blues of nature or you just want to stroll and enjoy the fresh cool breeze; then this is the perfect walk which I chanced upon this morning. A nice walk around Dragon’s back or more his/her feet. 😁

Duration: 1 hour 20 minutes. Approximately 5 kilometres

Difficulty: 2/10

How to get there: Take the MTR to Shaukeiwan and exit at A3. Take the number 9 bus to Cape Collinson stop, Shek O road.

I climbed up the steps near the board Shek O Country Park and turned right.

Instead of turning left I climbed up the slope ( normally the end of the Dragon’s back trail)

I kept walking on this path, rugged with roots covering quite a bit of the path. I got a glimpse of Stanley in the distance.

I came to a sign post. One pointed towards Dragon’s back which I didn’t want to climb and one sign towards To Tei Wan and Shek O Road. I took that path.

The path was lovely opening to stunning views of the sea and the sky.

I came to a path which was extremely muddy, sandy and uneven. I carried on slowly and continued my walk.

On the other-side there was a board that stated ‘ Diversion’. That was for the path that was sloped upwards.

I enjoyed the solitude and the cool breeze that caressed my face. The weather was perfect.

I reached a board and a set of steps that pointed and led to the Dragon’s back but I kept on the straight path towards Shek O Road.

I kept on the path and then walked down myriads of steps to the start of the Dragon’s back trail.

There were toilets near by too. I crossed the road and took the number 9 bus back to Shaukeiwan. (There is a red mini bus that also makes a stop and ends at Shaukeiwan.)

This was a good walk, no rope climbing or rock climbing. Just a peaceful walk in nature.

Sometimes it’s good to do something easy and give the knees a break.

This is a dog friendly hike, chil friendly hike too but not stroller friendly. Perfect for an absolute beginner.

Do try this walk and follow me for fun adventures on
