    It was 20 years when I went up there with my scout mates

    Nothing much except for walls covered with plant growth & a transmitter tower. The vantage point is good though & you can get to see slits in the walls for gunners to fire through.

    There is suppose to be a tunnel connecting from there to Sentosa. After several investigations they still cannot verify it.

    it is a restricted area due to some sensitive maritime equipment.

    .. and also that place is rumoured to be very haunted. there used to be a naval base next to it... ask them what they see and heard at night.

    If anyone's wondering...the hole at the bottom of the cliff filled with stones/rocks, is not the rumoured "tunnel to sentosa". The hole leads up to the watch towers, up there, there is another hole, filled up too. Should be a ladder which leads from the top to the bottom, but authorities have filled/sealed up the vertical tunnel.

    There is however a history sign board nearby at the bottom, which explains the rumours of the "sentosa tunnel"...they had submarines laying mines or something similar like electric lines/cables, hence sighted by people, the rumour of a tunnel constructed came about.

    If there are any connected tunnels, only the authorities would know of, since they would be the ones who did the sealing up back in the 60s, 70s. I have a ex-colleague who used to wander around labrador often exploring the tunnels before they were locked up due to lots of abuse (drug addicts, littering, illegal hideouts), there rumoured to be 5 tunnel entrances. So far i could see the main one (near the restuarants/toilets), one renovated but with iron gate, one with iron gate but interior untouched, one small one sealed up (a store room, visible along the walk path), another 5th location unknown. I have no info on it, if the 5th entrance is real. Haa

    For the outposts photos, for those who missed the previous outing, here's the photos to see.

    Have not heard any haunting rumours though, the area is pretty popular with anglers. And yup, the naval base next to it is no longer active, but once in a while you could see what seem to be ns boys ferrying (rations?) to sentosa? In a small yellow speed boat/ferry of some sort.

    which slope u climb siah? haaaa

    did u see the hole near the edge (below is the other rectangle hole in the ground at the foot of the cliff), that's the one which leads down, if u manage to peer into the hole, u can see the year the vertical tunnel was created.

    nothing much up there, no hidden treasure. Only the experience of enjoying the forgotten buildings' ambience.

    I tot that was the only slope up? Its a steep one. I think the other way to get in is thru the radio tower main gate. Yes I saw that hole. Its full of junk now. Hope it can be changed into a small pub or something. Seems to be a nice place to chill out if it is changed into something modern but retaining the old haunted look. Hahaha. Maybe you will see a lady in white drinking next to you.

    I rather they leave it as it is, than converting it to something commercial. Once business is there, a lot of restrictions, like u cant go here or there, restricted area, or the usual "im sorry but photography is not allowed here"....i rather keep history and available for future generations, than allowing it to be some tool for some businessman to earn for himself/herself.

    which side of the cliff did u go up by?

    It better be....the place should be left alone as it is. There's quite a few urban explorers out there who feel such places should be saved and preserved. For this is actual singapore history, once gone, we can't get it back.
