Much to do in MacRitchie
by Tiff Shao -- February 27th, 2010
A long day of hiking and monkeys
It was onwards to MacRitchie Reservoir for what was probably a 16-ish km hike. It was a hot day, which is basically what it’s like every day and should go without saying by now, but this is the first real hike I’ve been on in S’pore as far as I’m concerned. It felt great to get back onto a good ol’ hiking trail in the forest after doing so much urban sightseeing.
Even though it’s really not that high, it’s always nice to summit the highest point in a country.
There were Long-Tailed Macaques everywhere, which was the highlight of this trip for me.
Yawning is actually a way of saying BACK OFF. The flipping of my camera flash upset a big male some time during the hike and he got a bit too close for comfort, but nothing happened and it was worth it for this awesome capture!
And also a few monitor lizards…
