Thread: The Southern Ridges Photo Trail.

  1. #1

    Default The Southern Ridges Photo Trail.

    9km walk starting from Kent Ridge Park to Harbourfront (*Received Feedback this route goes downwards.)

    http://www.visitsingapore.com/publis...rn_Ridges.html

    9km route map http://www1.visitsingapore.com/publi...tmp/sr-map.pdf

    This is a pretty physical demanding trail especially if carrying camera gear so rest well the night before. Slippers not recommended.

    Its set for 23 January 2010 0900hr. Meet up point is at Kent Ridge Carpark B.

    Participants:
    hersheydesai plus 2 guests
    nickyu
    phoakm

    those interested can post here and its open to everyone who`s willing to attempt the full 9km route. Any feedback will be appreciated.

    will post updates here.

    PS: If you still have the strength, i will also be going to chinatown for the light up event after the trail.

    Should be morning. Evening may be too dangerous to attempt the full 9km.

    i've done the walk a few times, from harbourfront till west coast park. after that chill at the mac's with a shake, regain the calories burnt during the walk and add on a bit more anyway, it's easier if you do it in reverse i think. not so much climbing, more downhills.

    I would prefer a overall elevation drop. We are there to take pictures, not stamina training, right? Also after a long hike, the cooling aircon of Vivo will be very shiok

    Is the trail from:
    a) NUS to Marang trail(Mt Faber)?
    b) Alexandra Arch to Marang trail(Mt Faber)?
    c) Henderson Waves to Marang trail(Mt Faber)?

    My concern with option a) is that too long a trail will reduce the outing to a speed march instead of a photo-outing.

    It depends how much time the participants are willing to spend on the day. I dont mind taking the whole day so that can slowly walk the full 9km and enjoy the sights as well as snap photos.

    but since realistically not many people will have time to walk the full 9km, everyone have the option to split from the group when they need to.

    I've walked before, same direction as you.

    It gets pretty quiet around the NUS that side. /:
