Hike to Dragon’s Back (龍脊)

November 6 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm

Dear Lap-Cheers:

We are planning to go to the Dragon’s Back (龍脊, located in Shek O of South Island), which is a part of Stage 8 of the Hong Kong Trail, on Nov 6th (Saturday)! Dragon’s Back Trail was selected by Time Asia as the BEST Urban hiking trail in 2004! The truly spectacular views of southern Hong Kong Island, its shoreline, and other stunning landmarks including Shek O, Tai Long Wan, Stanley, Tai Tam, and the South China Sea, are provided by a sightseeing platform near the Dragon’s Back peak.

This event is organized by Lap-Chee College hiking team. We will take the Island Line together from Kennedy Town Station to Shau Kei Wan Station, and then transfer Bus No.9 or Red Mini-bus to To Tei Wan. The hiking trail will start from To Tei Wan Village (starting point, South) to Tai Long Wan Village (end point of our hiking trail, North), passing the Shek O Peak first (284m) and then Pottinger Gap.

Why not join us now in this great weather and enjoy the great view!

If you would like to hike with your friends from other residential colleges, feel free sign up below for them as well! All are welcomed.
