Description:

Mount Faber Park is one of the oldest parks in Singapore. The slopes of this 56-hectare park are covered by dense secondary rain forest, and are home to an amazing array of flora and fauna. The deeper you go along the walking trails, the more evident the jungle sounds of the cicadas and birds.

At the top of Mount Faber Park, you will find the Jewel Cable Car station and the various bars and restaurants of the Jewel Box where you can enjoy a drink or a bite to eat with a view.  Faber Point, the highest point of Mount Faber Park and the second highest in Singapore, stands at 106m. It is a short uphill walk from the Cable Car station and from here you will be rewarded with panoramic views over the city to the north and over Sentosa and the surrounding islands to the south.

To get Mount Faber, you can hike up the Marang Trail – a 15 minute uphill trek from Harbourfront MRT station, or alternatively take the Jewel Cable Car from Harbourfont Tower One. You can also visit Mount Faber as part of the Southern Ridges Walk.
