This hike is relatively flat and undulating (I would say, 85% of the way) with a few very short but steep slopes here and there, now and again.

This hike goes into the natural forested areas most of the way, and only in the beginning when we have to pass through the HDB residential area to get into the grassland, and then at our halfway point, when we make a detour for a break at a coffee shop.

Marsiling to MacRitchie Walk - along the way!

:P haha. (Seriously, I don't know where this is). The small group of us started off at about 8.10am from Marsiling MRT. This could be near Bukit Panjang, Bukit Timah hill, or Mandai. Anyone know for sure? I know Frankie would. Photo credit: Frankie Lee

Into the forest trail

A great part of this hike is the beautiful forest trails - wildly quiet, well-shaded and cool. We'll pass through quite a few different ones. Photo credit: Frankie Lee

Rest Stop on a bank of Seletar Reservoir

Great to have a secluded and scenic spot to rest about 7 km into our hike. From here, it's another one hour to our halfway point at the coffee shop for a lunch break. On this particular day, most of us brought out our packed lunch and had it here, enjoying the breeze and taking in the views. Photo credit: Eliza Ang / GC Heng

Daniel was amazing in accommodating everyone's requests. We had so much fun that we even did some impromptu trips outside the schedule which was so much fun! I am going back with Daniel to Iceland and already looking forward to that trip. 3PG has now become part of my travel schedule every year. There is at least 1-2 trips I plan with them. I really appreciate Georgina and team for this wonderful initiative. It is really incredible to make people from different background feel not only comfortable but enjoy the trip to the full extent if not more. I will very very highly recommend 3PG but with Daniel even more so :-) Read less

Read more Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay, Argentina, Brazil. 21 days 5 countries 17 flights. 6 adventurers and one & only one Daniel Goh Of course, my wife and I were attracted by Machu Picchu, Igauzu falls, Christ the Redeemer.. these are the key places that attracted us to South America. At the end of the tour,. I think we got more than what we bargained for.. perhaps that is the beauty of small private tour group. We can have options. The amazing Bolivia salt flat Uyuni with so many untold secrets.. Felt truly blessed to have visited this place. Oh.. we missed out the Inca hiking activity when we booked the tour and realised it only at subsequent tour briefing. It was tough, but feel great overcoming the challenge with 8 hours hike. We have fun together as a group tackling this task. We squeezed a lot more much waking time. During the tour. Evident in total of more than 17 flights just to shorten travelling time. We have food (both good & bad), interesting experience, and great fun as a group of six adventurers and one Daniel Goh. Especially with our exchange rate. I think most of us will find it very hard to have a similar holiday trip for a long time to come. It is really one of its kind with good memories to last for a pretty long time. As least for me, I feel very blessed to have my bucket list with South America fulfilled in 2019 in such fun, such fashion and such great companions started off as total strangers and we can be crazy as children in play.
