The HSBC TreeTop Walk is the highlight of several long hiking routes in MacRitchie that brings you through different stages of mature secondary forest. The walkway is a free-standing suspension bridge spanning Bukit Peirce and Bukit Kalang, the two highest points in MacRitchie. At 25m above the ground, the walkway gives you a closer look at the canopy, where all the action takes place.
Here, you also have a better view of some of our forest birds; Colugos (flying lemurs) and Long-tailed macaques (monkeys); view trees from an entirely different angle and enjoy a panoramic view of Upper Peirce Reservoir. Some 80 species of birds and 18 rare trees have been spotted in the forest.
The walkway is the first of its kind in Singapore and in the region. Work on the S$1.6m bridge began in August 2002 and was completed in July 2004. The total length of the walkway is about 250m and its height from the forest floor varies.
Walking along the suspension bridge…
The TreeTop Walk is accessible from MacRitchie Reservoir Park via MacRitchie Nature Trail (indicated as Route 3 on map) or from Venus Drive, off Upper Thomson Road. The distance to the entrance of the TreeTop Walk is approximately 4.5 km (1.5 – 2 hour walk) from the reservoir park and 2.5 km (45 mins – 1 hr walk) from the carpark at Venus Drive. Therefore, a round trip including the TreeTop Walk is about 7 to 10 km (3-5 hours depending on your walking pace).”
