One of the forgotten treasures of Singapore, Mount Serapong is a small hill in Sentosa Island where the dilapidated ruins of Fort Serapong are located. A place of visit for only the true explorers, the post-apocalyptic ruins on Mount Serapong date back to 1885 – the fort was once used to ward off pirates and invaders. 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 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. While the arduous hike to the fort is not recommended for children, young adventurists and solo travellers are bound to enjoy the challenge. Mount Serapong satiates not just history buffs with its sci-fi-esque radar towers, artillery areas, and hauntingly abandoned cellars – the panoramic views of Sentosa Island, Singapore, and the harbour from the top of the hill are breathtakingly beautiful!
