Tree Top Walk
After an amazing trip from MacRitchie Reservoir. I thought it’s best for our viewers and readers to help you with the information in case if you plan a trip here you will not face any challenges.
To give you an overview, Tree Top is,
The first of its kind in Singapore and in the region, this free-standing suspension bridge connects the two highest points (Bukit Peirce and Bukit Kalang) in MacRitchie and offers a bird's eye view of the community of plants and animals that live in the forest canopy.
The total length of the walkway is about 250 m and its height from the forest floor varies, with the highest point at 25 m.Besides providing another avenue for nature recreation for Singaporeans, the TTW also plays an important role in forest canopy research, an area many researchers were not able to get into because of lack of access. This bridge will help to facilitate surveys and plant identification work and further our understanding of how forest ecosystems work.
