The hill is not too high or challenging, and the hike up can be accomplished within 90 minutes even for unfit persons.

Tough yet Satisfying
Sep 2018
Great on early morning hikes, cool and breezy. Watch out for slippery road after night rain. Only fruits and drinks available at down hill. Outside the park has few roadside stalls offering breakfast.

Nothing like a breath of fresh air up in the hills
Jan 2019 • Family
Nice place to walk, jog or trek. You can drive up, or just walk up. The air is fresh and it sometimes gets very windy, especially in the early morning and late evening. A must visit for a fair share of mother nature.

Great place for cardio workout
Dec 2018 • Solo
This is a natural reserves forest in the town. If you like cardio and have a slow walk in the natural, then this is a place for you.

Do check weather forecast before you walk uphill, and also bring an umbrella along to protect yourself from wild monkeys.

It is easy to burn 500 calories if you manage to reach the second pit stop, after 35-40mins of slow walk from the car park.

If you loves cold flowing mountain water, you can visit the pool just near the car park.

The cafe at car park also open in the morning. You can enjoy simple breakfast there. The food is reasonable priced.

Give this review a like if you found useful to you. Thanks.

Nice hike
Feb 2018
My wife and I drove up here on a saturday to walk a bit, but we got into it really hard so we took the forrest trail and hiked all the way to the top. We're from Canada where it can get hot in summer but this was a heat like nothing else, unbelievable. Luckily we had brought a lot of water because we were looking like someone who just came out of a shower. but what a lovely walk and scenery. the plants, the trees and all the monkeys. Just a perfect day.

Nice hike
Feb 2018
It's a beautiful spot for a quick hike; bring lot's of water and don't play with the monkeys, they can be pretty agressive. My wife and I spent a nice afternoon here.
Will come back.

Good place to hike with friends and family with about one hour to the top. There are many off road trail as well for experience hikers only. At the recreational area there's pool, playground and etc.parking space is limited but shouldn't be a problem if go early.

Excellent exercise place
Dec 2017 • Friends
It is a reserve forest and open to public for recreation activities.

You will love it if you like hiking and walk up hill. It is a park fill with small stream and small pond filled with natural water.

You can enjoy the cold water after a walk. There are a few pit stop before you reach the top. It takes about an hour to reach the top. There are no food selling up there so bring an umbrella and small bottle of water with you.

Beware of the monkeys. They are wild monkeys, which curious of shinny things and red colors that resembles fruits. Umbrella is a good weapon when the monkey try to attack you or grab your bag.

Avoid going up by 6pm, as it might get too dark when you coming down. If you do, bring a touch light or make sure you switch on your mobile phone light.

This is an awesome place to hike around. The air is so fresh and the hill is full of luscious greenery.

Many people are seen hiking or strolling around this area any time of the day.
