Mount Serapong, Singapore Overview

One of the forgotten treasures of Singapore, Mount Serapong is a place of visit for only the true explorers. Atop the Sentosa Island, Serapong is a dilapidated site that holds curious remnants of history. Amongst the tourist attractions on the island and the luxury lifestyle of Sentosa Cove, this place seems quite out of the place as it is almost completely reclaimed by nature. The ruins of Fort Serapong are scattered throughout the place with structures dating back to 1885. The remnants still found in the area include underground magazines, support structures, casemates and a bunker which is 20 metres under the casemates and once served as a command centre.

Mount Serapong is littered with danger signs due to its highly unstable grounds and vandalised structures but is a must visit for history buffs or people who are fond of off the road exploration. Aside from the age-old sites, the place also provides a beautiful panoramic view of Singapore and the harbour. Mount Serapong is truly a day well spent amongst Singapore's historic landscape and a place of many wonders.
