PHOTOGRAPHY – Exploring Hong Kong’s Most Haunted Abandoned Mansion


Blessed with a prime location on The Peak, Dragon Lodge is cursed with a chequered, somewhat gory, history.

Dragon Lodge, Hong Kong

HK URBEX explored Hong Kong’s ‘most haunted’ house, which now lies in a state of decay.

Built before WWII, it is said that the original owner went bankrupt. The second owner died in the house and then it is believed that the Japanese occupied the property, decapitating several Catholic nuns in the front yard.

In the late 60s, the property became victim of a ‘pump and dump‘ scheme and was last purchased in 2004 for HK$76 million.

A woman who lived at Dragon Lodge in the 70s wrote on a blog that she often saw a ‘ghost child and heard her crying. She stated that “there was something very sorrowful about the child as she seemed to be asking for help”.

At one stage the mansion was being redeveloped – however the restoration was seemingly abandoned.

The property is situated at 32 Lugard Road, though security measures were improved recently to prevent urban explorers from gaining access.
