Sentosa Island is famous for its attractions and beaches. You will find here, but also several peaks on which the original jungle remains to this day. One of them is Imbiah, around which the route of the same name leads. You will find several waterfalls here, but they were obviously created by human hands. But the surrounding jungle is nice and worth a walk.

Entrance route to Imbiah Trail

You can go on the route around the Imbiah hill from both the west and the east. The eastern entrance is the main one, located just a short distance from the cable car station.

Imbiah - Surrounding Jungle

The path goes around the whole hill basically along the contour, so this route is suitable for practically anyone. The surrounding jungle is rich in a variety of trees and plants

Jungle in the afternoon sun

Some of the trees here are really tall. It is worth going here in the morning or in the late afternoon, when the sun gives the jungle a beautiful color.

Imbiah Falls

After about 200 meters of walking, the first local „attraction“ is the Imbiah waterfall.

Tempinis Cascade

Another 200 meters away is the biggest attraction here – Tempinis Cascade, although here it is obvious that man has helped nature a little.

Rock Dragon

You will now pass a turn leading straight up the hill, but continue along the circular path. You'll soon encounter a stone dragon.

A journey through the jungle

And this is how the walkway leading through the jungle looks like – a pleasant path suitable for any footwear.

The most beautiful trees on the Imbiah Trail

Looking at these giants, one realizes how many beautiful forests have unfortunately already been destroyed.

Jungle View at Reflections

There aren't many viewpoints along the way, but on the eastern side you will have at least a partial view of the new interesting skyscrapers – Reflections at Keppel Bay. It is six curved towers. The towers are 160 meters high.

View from Imbiah Tower

We ascend to the very top of Imbiah Hill. It's already a bit busy here, because one of Sentosa's attrac­tions – MegaZip Adventure Park – starts here. From there, the zipline goes all the way down to the beach and ends at Sentosa Beach Island. The Imbiah Tower is freely accessible a bit next to it, but you can't see much from its top. Through the tops of the trees, you can see only the cable car and a bit of the sea in the distance.

Imbiah Fort

Around the top there are several remains of fortifications from the beginning of the 20th century. You can find a whole range of such strongholds on Sentosa.

If you want to save a few meters and especially not to return from the top of the hill on the road, be sure to choose a shortcut via a small staircase. It is only a short distance from him to the beginning of the route. The entire circuit is just over a kilometer + count on boarding. It depends on where you start from
