  • At 163.63m, this is Singapore's tallest "mountain". I last visited it 34 years ago. Went there twice in the last 3 weeks. If you are parking at the public carpark at the Visitor centre below on weeken...  more »
  • To the summit is a quick hike but a challenging one. We took the loops to the diary farm which was about 10km. It was well signed and well maintained.  more »
  • Great opportunity to see the rain forest and wild Singapore. Slamming them onto the cake on top of the highest point of the easy access to make my way to Singapore. Surprisingly few tourists. A short walk to the Beauty World MRT stop. Routes marked with the route options you can find 30 minutes to several hours. Free of charge.

  • 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
