The Southern Ridges

Wednesday, October 02, 2013

Last weekend I was so bored I decided to trek Mt. Faber from Hort Park in Alexandra Road. Yes you read that right! Hort Park to Henderson Waves alone is about 2.2 km walk but you don't have to worry because the trail is safe and directions are found in every corner. They also have precautions along the way just in case you encounter wild monkeys.

Getting There

One of the many things I love about Singapore is it's easy to find your way around. Everything is so detailed that you'll never get lost. I mean, ever! If you don't know how to get there then gothere is your friend. I live in Clementi which is in the west of Singapore so I took Bus 166 to get there.

Forest Walk

From the bus stop, I climb my way up to the bridge and start trekking to the Henderson waves. This pathway is called the Forest Walk.

Mount Faber

From the Henderson Waves, it'll took about 5 minutes walk to reach Mount Faber.

The Marang Trail

It's actually quite scary trekking this trail alone. I don't recommend you to use the Marang Trail at night especially when you're all alone because there aren't any light posts. Well, if you're all for adventure then why not? I've found out afterwards that there's an abandoned cemetery in the area and the huge house I saw passing by was also abandoned. Thank goodness I was innocent from all these things when I use the Marang trail. Ahahaha!
