The Basics

The TreeTop Walk connects the two highest points within the MacRitchie forest: Bukit Peirce and Bukit Kalang. The narrow bridge walkway can support 30 walkers at a time, but foot traffic is one-way, so once you begin, you have to finish. The walkway allows visitors to walk through the park without disturbing the flora and fauna in the forest below. Most travelers visit independently, and combine the walk with other forest hikes.

When to Get There

The walkway is popular among locals, so it can get crowded Saturday and Sunday. It’s usually closed Monday unless it’s a public holiday. Opening hours are 8:30am to 5pm. Singapore is a very hot and humid country, so travelers who find the heat uncomfortable may want to avoid doing this walk in the middle of the day.
