Like nature and like to hike? Let's hike to the Henderson Waves and explore the Southern Ridges, a series of hills and parks that connect Kent Ridge Park, Hort Park, Telok Blangah Hill Park, Mount Faber Park and Labrador Nature Reserve.
Traverse on an elevated bridge that cuts through the adinandra belukar, a distinct type of secondary forest where the forest regenerates after exhaustive agriculture exploitation. Look out for the rich flora and fauna, such as the straw headed bulbul, the weaver ant nest or the oriental whip snake, among the tree canopy. I will also share with you the types of wildlife that can be found in Singapore.
The Terrace Garden is made up of a series of semi-circular terraces situated at the top of Telok Blangah Hill. From here, you will be able to enjoy a breath-taking 360-degree view of Singapore. If you are lucky, we might be able to see a sea of pink bougainvillea bloom.
The Henderson Waves is a pedestrian bridge that spans across a deep valley 36 metres below. The unique wave-like design of the Henderson Waves makes for an unusual sight and a famous photo spot.
Faber Point is the highest point on Mount Faber. From the lookout points here, we will have a panoramic view of the city, the southern part of Singapore and the southern islands. If the weather is good, we will be able to see Marina Bay Sands from afar! From these lookout points, I will also share about the life of average Singaporean, the development of Singapore’s housing and the importance of the maritime industry to Singapore.

This 5 kilometres hike consists of well-paved paths and sections of mild slope. Comfortable walking shoes is preferred.
A short distance from Faber Point is the Singapore Cable Car, a cable car service which connects to the bottom of Mount Faber and Sentosa island. You can buy a ticket there and hop on the cable car to get a fantastic aerial view going down or even continue on to Sentosa island. Otherwise, we will be taking the stairs down.
