Getting there

There are heaps of ways to get there, you can drive but be prepared parking is scarce and a little pricey. A better option is to catch the bus to the bottom of the reserve - Beauty World station. From there cross over the overpass and head up Hindhede Road. The walk starts at the Visitor Centre.

Route/Trail notes

The walk is well marked with a lot of sidetracks you can go down as well. The incline is fairly shallow, but being that it is the highest point (apart from some of the skyscrapers) in Singapore you will see a lot of people out training with full backpacks. Eventually you will reach a staircase that leads to the rock marking the summit. Keep following the track and you can continue the loop finishing back where you started.

Due to a plane delay coming back from Turkey I had to spend the day in Singapore so figured why not tick off another country high point. Nice easy stroll, no views from the top, or anywhere on the walk, but what it lacks in views it makes up for in monkeys - there are heaps of them!! One of them nicked off with my Woolworths bag but dropped it when he realised all that was in it was my water bottle and hat.
