Previously known as Thomson Reservoir or Impound Reservoir, MacRitchie Resevoir is Singapore’s oldest reservoir. Completed in 1868, it now serves as a popular spot for nature lovers and exercise enthusiasts.
The reservoir loop hike spans 12km and covers the TreeTop Walk, a 250m long suspension bridge that offers bird’s eye view of the community of plants and animals that live in the forest canopy. Another important highlight of the loop is the Jelutong Tower, a 7-deck observation tower that offers an unobstructed, 360-degree view of the forest in MacRitchie.
Be sure to visit the Zig-Zag Bridge as well as the 40m long submerged boardwalk for a complete experience of MacRitchie Reservoir.
- Complete the loop in an anti-clockwise direction as the Treetop walk is unidirectional (one-way).
- The TreeTop Walk closes at 5pm sharp.
- The only resting point with toilet facilities is at Mushroom Cafe (starting point) and Ranger Station which is 4.5km from the starting point.
