  • The highest point of Singapore is Bukit Timah Hill at 163 m above sea level. Bring the water, when there are trails from the visitor centre to the top of the Hill one way takes approximately 30 minutes to visit during a hot day. In addition to being a pretty tired of the steep course is not stand on top of a hill. You don't by the way, looks like a landscape.

  • 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...  more »

  • Starts off with a steep gradient slope initially. Then plateaus off for an easier stretch before the final climb up a 200m ladder of steep steps that will test your quads! The summit is pleasant and cool in the shade. The hubris surrounding this hill is well deserved.
  • Favourite Great MTB Trails for more advance riders
  • One of the largest and oldest nature reserves in Singapore, also boasting the highest hill in Singapore. This is a place if you want to be one with nature. Wanting more excitement! There's a mountain biking trail which will put your physical prowess to the test!
  • Informative place to walk and bring kids there. Just reopened after a long time renovation.
  • Favorite place to exercise and to train for hiking. Watch out for the monkeys, they will snatch your bread or banana from behind
