, 29 Singapore August 2016 – Following the successful launch of ‘Let’s Lepak at Mount Faber’ in August, the car-free event returns on 3 September 2016 with two new activities for the public to enjoy for free.
The first activity features a heritage and nature guided walk along a section of the Southern Ridges. Co-organized by Mount Faber Leisure Group and NParks, the two-hour walk kicks off at 4.30pm at Telok Blangah Hill Park, passing through Henderson Waves and Mount Faber Loop which will be closed off from traffic for the car-free event, before ending at the hilltop at Faber Peak. The nature trail will feature spectacular views of the city and Sentosa from different vantage points, and enable participants to learn about the rich variety of flora and fauna as well as the rich heritage found along the ridge.Interested participants are required to register, please click on the link below.

Co-organized by Active SG, the second event features Orienteering, a sport where runners have to find their way across terrains with the aid of a map and compass, utilising both navigation and map reading skills. The Orienteering activity is between 4pm – 6.30 pm and starts from Mount Faber Loop. Each participant is challenged to complete all ten checkpoints, with an opportunity to win prizes upon completion of the event.
