Keppel Hill Reservoir Trek, Singapore Overview

The path of the Keppel Hill Reservoir Trek was once a private pool and an abandoned reservoir, abandoned in the early 1950s. The tank is 2 metres deep and was supposedly used to provide water to the city of Singapore back in 1905. The remnants of the area include old water pipes, a diving board, a mysterious stranded tombstone at the top of the hill and broken concrete steps.

The trail goes through a dense, forested jungle and leads to another abandoned path leading to Mount Faber. The route to the reservoir starts at Keppel Hill and goes downhill through the woods. The forested path leads up to the reservoir. The trek is not very difficult in itself but is exciting and adventurous owing to the rich history. The reservoirs with its rugged surroundings and raw landscape attract a lot of tourists each year. The National Heritage Board discovered the abandoned sight in 2014, and since then it has gained popularity for its history and is now a trekking route. The surroundings and rustic remains around all around the trek make for an exciting experience.
