I finally manage to visit this place after a 2-year restoration work. The most convenient public transport is to take the Downtown line and alight at Beauty World Station. I first headed for exit C to Bukit Timah Hawker Centre for breakfast, returned for exit A or B for the starting point. I was fortunate there was a passing shower... More

It is a very nice place to hike. Beautiful scenery and fresh air. A good place to getaway from the rustle bustle city. There are many routes of difficulty levels to choose from. Lots of steps for the difficult ones! Enjoy! Do minimally bring a small water bottle and towel.

great for tracking and mountain biking. huge park with lots of different tracks. because of dense Forrest these tracks / trails can also be explored on hot and rainy days. bring lots of water, however refill stations are available.

Known to be the tallest hill in Singapore, this Nature Reserve contains quite a few trekking trails for nature lovers and trekking enthusiast alike. The general trail is gentle and friendly to novice trekkers, while more experienced trekkers can opt to hike on a few jungle trails that are more challenging in distance/ obstacles/ gradient. A good place to bring... More

Go during the weekdays if you can because it gets very crowded during the weekends. The start up the hill is kind of steep so pace yourself . Didn't see much wildlife but that's probably because there were a lot of people on the trails so could have scared them off. Don't forget to visit the quarry lake and get... More

Escape modernity, get your hike on and come to this place! Was tricky to find, locals within 200m of the place didn't know where it was but take MRT to Beauty World (haha) then walk towards the jungle covered hills with telecommunication poles onot top. Come equipped with plenty of water and a camera. Within joy of trekking in virgin... More

I have been waiting for the Nature Reserve to reopen for more than a year's closure for intensive repairs. The Park & Trees Board finally declare the opening two months ago. But I still find an...

We started from the Railway Track at King Albert Park as an alternative entrance. Nice photo spots along this 30min stroll to the visitor centre. At the Reserve, we chose the moderate path (South View Path-Cave Path). Full of steps! but the newly revamped steps make the climb nicer. We then ended off our hike at the Hindhede Quarry. A...
