About this event

Rubber & Rambutan - Exploring Windsor Nature Park image

Highlights:

  • Explore the remnants of an old kampong and rubber estate and discover fruit trees such as durian, rambutan or starfruit planted by the villagers of the once thriving community.
  • Soak up the tranquil atmosphere as we follow the shaded forest trails through the old rubber plantation and along an idyllic forest stream.
  • Listen to the ever-present songs of birds and try to spot some of the elusive forest creatures foraging through the greenery along the trail.

Tour synopsis:

This 2-hour walk aims to showcase Windsor Nature Park as more than just the trailhead for hikes to the TreeTop Walk and that it merits more than just a glance in passing. Instead of making a beeline through this 75-hectare buffer park, we will take our time to discover its rustic and idyllic ambience.

Accompanied by the crowing of the ubiquitous jungle fowls and the murmurings of a brook that has yet to be forced into a concrete corset, we will take a leisurely stroll along shaded forest trails through what once was a rubber estate and a kampong. Old rubber trees still bearing the telltale scars of countless tappings and foundations of long-abandoned dwellings crumbling away in the twilight under the canopy are all that remains of the kampong life of a past that today is slowly vanishing under a carpet of greenery as the forest makes its comeback.

Recommended minimum age: 10 years
