Overall Difficulty (0Star)

Although Shek O Peak sits at Shek O Country Park at an altitude of only 284 metres, its footpath leads to D’Aguilar Peninsula, where turquoise waters in the surroundings that stretch to the horizon come into full view.  It belongs to Section 8 of the Hong Kong Trail, connecting with Wan Cham Shan along the ridgeline of the world-renowned Dragon’s Back . It got this name because of the resemblance of its meandering and undulating hills to the shape of the back ridge of a dragon.  The footpath also overlooks Big Wave Bay and Shek O, commands views of Tung Lung Island and Hong Kong’s southernmost island Po Toi Island in the distance, and offers vistas of the boundless South China Sea.  To enhance the public’s understanding about the nearby mountains and islands, there are information boards at the Dragon’s Back Viewing Point.
