It’s been a while since our last hiking expedition, so this week we took some time out of our busy schedules to explore a well-known nature trail in the heart of Singapore! The MacRitchie Reservoir Park is a popular place for Singaporeans to engage in healthy lifestyles, such as jogging along the reservoir, kayaking or hiking on the many nature trails surrounding the MacRitchie Reservoir!
The MacRitchie Reservoir is the oldest reservoir in Singapore, and can hold up to 465 million imperial gallons of water. There are primary and secondary forests surrounding the reservoir, and many trails exist for adventurous hikers to conquer! One of the attractions at MacRitchie Reservoir is the Treetop Walk, which offers visitors a ‘treetop’ experience and some amazing panoramic sights high above the ground. That was our initial goal, so with our usual camera companions, we headed out in the late afternoon.
As mentioned, our original aim was to make it to the Treetop Walk; however it was almost reaching the closing time, and we had well over 1.5 km to go from this junction. Therefore, we decided to complete another challenging trail, which would take us around the MacRitchie Reservoir!
Upon reaching the reservoir, we were greeted with a beautiful sight which aptly marked the end of our trip:
We had the opportunity to use our SX-70 Sonar Onestep, and utilised the B&W film from Impossible Project; check them out below!
MacRitchie Nature Park is so vast, we simply could not cover it in one day! We definitely learnt our lesson, and will come back early to access the Treetop Walk next time round. While we enjoyed our hike, it was also fun to take photos and capture the right moments where possible. We hope you have enjoyed this entry once again; if there’s anything to take away from this entry, it’s that Singapore is full of unknown and lesser-visited places, and we urge you to check them out!
Till next time,
