Meeting point: Exit A Beauty World MRT station

We will start the trek from the Visitor’s Center of Bukit Timah Hill. It will be a relatively easy ascend up Taban Valley and we will cross path with visitors via the South View route. The ascend will continue with a relatively flat cruise along the South View Path to the Kruing path. Depending on seasons, there may also be sights of migratory birds, butterflies, mushrooms and fruits along the way. We will take a short rest at South View Hut, after which, we will descend via Simpang Hut at the Summit. The treks continues after a water or snacks break at the summit via the Jungle Fall Valley as we continued to be intrigued by nature. Be expectant to meet some of the lease-free permanent residents of Bukit Timah Hill - sleepy flying foxes(Malayan Colugo), friendly piper snakes, curious wild boars, noisy roosters, nimble squirrels, naughty monkeys etc.

The trip comes with an pre-trek small snack care package specially prepared for you at the beginning of the trip.

Hope to see you soon!

Meet your host, Hazel

Host on Airbnb since 2012
  • Identity verified
I grew up in a kampong in Malaysia, surrounded by many aged native rainforests. The forest was my biggest playground. I recalled exploring the nature, sometimes alone, or many other times with my other forest ranger friends. Catching spiders, identifying edible mushrooms, collecting leaf specimen were part of my childhood hobbies.

I used to host camping events with children aged 7 to 12. While I teach them survival skills in the forest, it is important also, for them to foster a love for the nature amidst the fun.
With industrialization, it became my passion to educate and share on the importance of forest conservation, sustainable living and living symbiotically and harmoniously with mother Earth.

I speak a variety of languages, and I hope with my knowledge, I can provide a unique and informative experience for you.
