After the renovation, the well-paved path makes it even more attractive to hike through the dense primary forest. Rather than taking the main path to the summit, I would suggest taking the cave path as there's a lot more to see. Do take note this...More

It was raining when we decided to visit this place but it was still an enjoyable experience. This is an easy hike but proper shoes/attire will still help. The nature reserve has clean facilities and the paths/roads are well maintained. Saw some monkeys, squirrels and...More

This is a nice nature reserve for an escapade from the busy-singapore. Choose the South View Track and we will have a nice high-tree and sounds of the birds.

Instead of having activities in company, this place is awesome for safety day and relax yourself from work, and working out for your health. The main road is quite steep but getting better after half way to the summit. Toilet is clean and free water...More

Some tough routes with steep stairs leading to Dairy Farm. The route to the water pipes along BKE is a different experience. Can hear a huge variety of birds that you don't usually hear. Would be a good place for bird watchers too. The slope...More

Multiple trails of different technical difficulty allow people of all ages and abilities to hike up the hill. A popular place for trail runners and recreational hikers. One can potentially complete a 30km loop around the entire nature reserve.

I find Bukit Timah Nature Reserve a bit too challenging for my taste (and body). It involves quite some climbing (stairs) and descending. Having said that, the scenery is interesting and varied, as is the fauna and flora. So if you're more of a hiker...More

One of the beautiful nature parks with tropical forest. The peak is just 164m so not that challenging for pros but for lazy bones like me it was still tough. There are multiple routes but take cave walk route ( on left from entrance) which...More

Take the original route from Hindhede Drive (Off Upper Bukit Timah Road). Most of the walking will be on slope. The first will be the steepest. Overcome it the rest should be fine. After the first slope will be a little rest... More
