NileGuide Expert tip:
The weather can change quickly in the rainforest - ensure you take drinking water, a plastic bag for cameras and phones and suitable walking shoes.
The HSBC TreeTop Walk, is the highlight of popular nature reserve MacRitchie Reservoir Park
. This free-standing 250m long suspension bridge gives you a bird's eye view of the plants and animals in the rainforest canopy from its 25m high position. The Park is home to more than 840 flowering plant and 500 animal species, so you have a good chance of spotting Long Tailed Macaques, Monitor Lizards, White-bellied Fish-eagles and an abundance of butterflies and birds.
The nature reserve offers several boardwalk treks around the reservoir and more rugged forest trails which vary in length from 3km to 11km. The Blue trail to the HSBC TreeTop Walk is a 10.5km round trip from the MacRitchie Reservoir Park. For a slightly shorter walk, an alternative 7km (orange) trail can be taken from the Venus Drive car park. The TreeTop Walk allows one-way traffic only so don't try to do the walk in reverse!
