Connie Ong (second from left), heading the BSA Walking Interest Group meticulously mapped 8km hiking route with key checkpoints such as Alexandra Arch, Henderson Waves, Mount Faber Cable Car Station, Black & White Colonial Houses along Pender Rd, Gillman Barracks and back to HortPark.

Shortly, we reached the foot of the Telok Blangah Hill Park, where we enjoyed the serenity of nature. It was another short and manageable climb before we reached the hilltop leading to the Henderson Waves. While we were conquering the height, we passed by fitness corners and therapeutic gardens that served as short respites to recharge and refresh.
Our efforts paid off handsomely as we finally reached the iconic Henderson Waves, 36 metres above Henderson Road. We took a customary photo on this artistic wooden structure which mimics the undulating and curvy shape of a wave. Standing on the highest pedestrian bridge in Singapore, we managed to capture a bird's eye view of the city skyline, and it was truly breathtaking!
