MacRitchie Loop……. round the entire reservoir! including the TreeTop
MacRitchie Reservoir needs no introduction.
It was opened in 1967 and through the years, trails were launched,
boardwalks were built. Several trails are named after tree species
commonly found along the trails eg., Prunus, Petai, Chemperai,
Jering and Petaling.
It is still a popular recreational area, esp in the mornings
during weekends or public holidays, many different groups of walkers,
hikers, families young and old are found along the various trails.
TreeTop Walk** – a 250m long freestanding suspension bridge between
the 2 highest points in this Central Catchment Nature Reserve
(MacRitchie), still the 1st of its kind in Singapore.
Be delighted with panoramic views, green green grass, giant trees,
close encounters with thousand species of flowering plants,
keep your eyes opened in case you chance upon native creatures,
insects, birds…..white-bellied Fish Eagles soaring above.
**TreeTop Walk: those who decides not to go across this, our
Ms AliceS will lead you through another route.
Please bring along a snack or fruit for the extra “energy boost”!
This walk will end past norm lunch hour ie., we will have a late lunch.
Therefore, will help to reserve lunch for you at the Cafeteria.
There are varieties but servings are limited.
If you want lunch:
please place order(indicate Item No.), make payment upon registration.
It seems silly to collect such a small amount, however, Cafeteria requires a
deposit due to bad experiences, if it is a no show of 1 or 2 pax/orders, I can
pay for it but if more, will not be possible as I will not be needing additional
ordered lunch at all.
To simplify, only 3 choices:
1) Laksa (yummy good!) … 4.50
2) Mushroom Chicken Noodle … 4.50
3) Chicken Chop Rice … 5.50
Remit payment to POSB Savings Account No. 542-107-561.
