Treetop to treetop

We went to the Tree top walk near the Singapore Island Country Club Saturday morning, a 20-30 min walk led us to the trail from the main road where all but the latest models of BMWs, Mercedes and Volvos zipped dangerously past us. It began to pour just as we neared the walk and we seeked shelter at the guard house cum mini staff canteen of the SICC until the rain stopped. Then we walked into the trail with the sky still rumbling overhead. All the green which slowly began to surround us brought back memories of my army days.

Here are some photos for you to enjoy!

The tree top walk itself is a suspension bridge about 250m in length, i believe and it gives you a wide view of the surroundings. It was a little misty to see too far away so I didn't make many pictures there, but it was breathtaking nonetheless. The path beyond that wasn't too siong (tough) as it was paved with wooden planks and railings. We were greeted by a company of noisy primary school scouts.. who turned the place into a noisy school canteen, also present were organised groups from corporations having their outings and individual families having morning walks. Too crowded for my liking and a total disregard of noise discipline.

Up and down the paths went and it took us and a couple of hours to return to the ranger station, ready for lunch and a cold drink at Thomson Plaza.

project roti, hehe thanks, botak trees create a certain moody feel depending on the weather

sandra, thanks for the compliments.. just came back from chalet, more pics to come :p

cheelip, well yes, its connected to mac ritchie. in fact the whole central catchment area is connected via jungle trails (this includes bukit timah nature reserve) but the tree top walk is nearest to the road leading to the SICC
