walking in Nature

The clear waters allow you to see the native fish and snakes in the water. The heavy thick brush on both sides of the trail provides a real connection with the animals.

We did the whole circuit of 11+ kms. Great "nature" in the middle of a bustling metropolis. Walking over the bridge we came across a monkey that tried to undo a backpack and then took a swipe at me as I tried to pass. Avoid eye contact!

We started out here and should have looked at the trail but it was a nice walk...we ended up doing about 14Km by the time we went to the treetops walk and back....Good day out but make sure you match length of walk to your fitness as we were hurting for a couple of days after !

The nature trails around the MacRitchie Reservoir are a great place to have a walk in the countryside in Singapore. It's also a good place to see wildlife - I saw lots of Macaques, birds (if you start early enough in the day), fish, monitors, skinks and a water monitor. The treetop walk is good, and the Jelutong tower is... More

MacRitchie Reservoir is great for hiking with family and friends or by yourself. You are very likely to encounter macaques up close along the way and even a few monitor lizards. The TreeTop Walk (usually open between 9am to 5pm) is one of the highlights and offers a breathtaking view high up in the trees. There are wooden boardwalks and... More
