The MacRitchie Reservoir Park in Macritchie

Nature trips are often about getting down and dirty, and being rugged for nature’s sake. But, there’s still more to that than meets the eye. You’ll have to really experience something from it to see what value you can take away and give back to Nature. That’s why MacRitchie Reservoir is here to take you there.

Of course, the fastest, cheapest, and easiest way to reach the MacRitchie Reservoir is via MRT. The nearest MRT station is at any of these MRT stations: Caldecott / Toa Payoh / Ang Mo Kio / Bishan / Marymount. It’s certainly a quick walk – a good prelude to the nonstop walk and hike that’s about to happen. It will take around 10-15 minutes from these. You can also do a combination of MRT and bus: 132, 163, 165, 166, 167, 640, 52 or 980.
