    SG Gem..
    Mount Faber is SG’s second highest hill. Its location is quite central-south, opposite the Sentosa Island and nestled near the Telok Blangah secondary rain forest. Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city access to the Hill is either via car, a hiking trail or even by Singapore’s cable car system (Mount Faber Station) linking Mount Faber to Sentosa Island, But most ppe goes to the destination mainly for the suite of leisure, lifestyle and F&B services. Featuring some famous & iconic F&B establishments at the Top, locals & tourists came to savour a taste at high altitude! Via hiking from the Henderson Waves side the park is part of the Southern Ridges, which also comprises Telok Blangah Hill Park, HortPark, Kent Ridge Park and Labrador Nature Reserve. The stunning view of the horizon is amazing and one can also gaze through the telescopes at one of the many lookout points for that panoramic view of the surroundings and the few southern islands From the very original Defence Fort for Colonial Singapore the place has transformed itself to an attractive destination for many!

    Expansive Views
    After visiting the Henderson Wave, adding a hike up Mount Faber was an easy decision. There were hardly anyone else hiking up so o had the paved paths to myself the majority of the time. Once I crested the top, I was greeted with clear views of the surrounding area including the water. Besides the views, there were other things to see while at the top including: 1. a small merlion statue (finally got to see one as its larger sibling is still under renovation) 2. Bronze (?) castings of numerous. events throughout Singapore’s history 3. Seating area with glass arrows pointing to different areas in Singapore, ie. Marina Bay. Coming down from Mount Faber you could take the cable car or follow one of the trails to Harbourfront. This would connect you to the MRT, Sentosa Island or ferry to Batam.

    Good mountainous views
    Arriving their via cable car , it is good to see uphill views across . It would have been nice to just relax and have a sip of cold coffee but we are pressed with time in Sentosa. Rest assured it needed a few hours in this place.

    Great views over Singapore and Sentosa island - 2nd highest peak in Singapore
    We visited Mount Faber as part of a cruise ship excursion and was told by our guide that it was the second highest 'mountain' in Singapore. Calling it a mountain is a little flattering as it's just a few hundred meters tall, lower than many of the buildings in the city, but the views were worth the short stop. In one direction you have views over the city, and in the other you can see Sentosa Island and the imposing 'Reflections at Keppel Bay' condominiums. We accessed the mountain top via coach and a short walk, however one of the most popular ways of getting there is the Singapore Cable Car, where the line from Sentosa Island finishes. The top of the mountain is very wooded with many trees and wildlife a plenty. On our walk a large 'grasshopper / cricket' type creature landed on my back...it must have been big as I felt it land through my clothes, but I didn't get the chance to take a photo as our guide swiped at it with his stick and it left the scene before I could get a good look at it! It's a popular hiking location and I can see why as it was a nice viewpoint and the mountain looked like a great place to spot wildlife etc. I wish we had longer there to explore but sadly our time was limited to a short photo stop. Well worth checking out.

    Good views and pleasant walk.
    Mount Faber is easily reached by cable car. There is a nice restaurant for drinks or meals. If you are having dinner I would recommend that you book it and wear insect repellent. There is a sloping walk down the hill that meets up with the Henderson Waves Bridge. The rest of the South Ridge walk is getting repaired just now but will be open in April.

    Wonderful green space and park full of hiking paths and trails with the Faber Peak for sweeping view of Singapore
    We took the cable car from harbor front to Mount Faber. Started our morning here for some hiking and walking around the area. Got to see the Poland's Bells of Happiness at Faber Peak, a set of very colorful steps. Walked along the footpath to reach Faber Point, the circular viewing area offers views of Keppel Harbor. It also has glass panels embedded into the ground pointing to many local landmarks. We found the Merlion statue here. There are also many murals with the time to enjoy. The point area is extremely popular with tour buses. Seems like endless amount of people poured into the point for photographs. We waited a little bit, they come in waves so we got our peace and quiet after they rushed in and rushed out. The area has many shaded paths, a good way to spend the day.

I like the therapeutic effect of immersion in natural environment. The first place I think of is the forest walk in the Southern Ridges. However, when I reached the Alexandra Arc Bridge this morning, it was barricaded for maintenance and a notice from NPARKS offered another alternative route via Depot Heights.

From the rear of Blk 106A Depot Heights, I found a staircase that led me to the Terrace Garden. Tall dense trees loomed at both sides of the staircase, and I like the feeling of being surrounded by greenery. From the Terrace Garden, I went around exploring the Picnic Hilltops, Alkaff Mansion, the Henderson Waves and the Therapeutic Garden of Telok Blangah Hill Park before wandering further to Mount Faber Park.

It was drizzling when I reached the Terrace Garden. As the rain patter down, the Telok Blangah Hill Park became misty and cooling. I felt like I was at Genting or Cameron Highlands. The pavilion at the Picnic Hill top looked majestic with two rows of trees standing tall like muscular strong bodyguards protecting her. The garden at Alkaff Mansion resembled one in a rustic English town of the Victorian age decorated with beautiful rosy garlands of flowers hang on the walls. Visitors who patronized the restaurant sat in the open garden relaxed, enjoying their food while at the second floor, a wedding function was going on.

The panoramic view at Mount Faber was gorgeous and breathtaking on that misty rainy morning. I could feel the freshness of the air and the millions of ions emitting from the surrounding trees and vegetation as my eyes looked across the cable car plying towards Sentosa. A signage at Mount Faber Peak stated that Mount Faber commanded the best hilltop view of Singapore. I fully agreed with it.

As I walked along the Marang Trail, I realized that this is indeed one of the many trails at Mount Faber hillside that I am looking for to take my forest bath. A sense of calmness and peace enveloped me and set my mind into a meditative state. I stood still for a while taking few deep breaths to enjoy the fresh air.

As I exit the trail, the heavy traffic noise at Harbour Front woke me up from my sedative state. The Southern Ridges hike from Alexandra to Mount Faber took me about two hours but I treasured and loved this immersive trail with nature.

Best accessed from the Singapore Cable Car is this rugged green space with lots of walking trails that connect up to other parks. Henderson Waves is a short ten minute walk from here. At the top cable car station there is a small gift shop, a restaurant and the Polish Bells. Ring both for luck.
