1 Day Hike & chill’out at Waterfall

Let’s explore a 8 hectare forest reserve, an important water catchment area for Johor Bahru and Singapore.  This is a rather gentle hike up to a protected forest area in southern Johor. In the middle of this Recreational Forest is the 700-meter tall waterfall. There is also a cascading waterfall at the bottom of the forest, which is quite popular to the locals only.  (We will chill out and for those playful ones, let’s take a dip into the refreshing waters here). The wildlife of the forest includes deer, monkeys and several species of birds. unique flora and fauna sanctuary and a fascinating recreational haven. There are several waterfalls with pools at its bottom.

CNY SPECIAL: If time permits, i will also show you the way to buy YUMMY Kueh Lapis for the Chinese New Year. I bought once and ooohhhh, its delicious lah!  🙂

After the hike and chill out at the waterfall, we will head down for a Sumptuous dinner before we come back to Singapore.
