Bukit Singa (Lion's Hill)


Pictures above are taken from of Bukit Singa (Lion's Hill), depart from resort at 3pm and arrived to top at 4pm. Look at the rock that shaped like a lion head, Hiking up to about 10 minutes, The hill climbs more than 45 degrees. The view you can see up here like you are at newzealand or other overseas country, really worth for the climb.
And I must say that trekkers need to wear the appropriate shoes, Although the distance to Lion Rock is not so distant. we need to go through rough and slippery rocky areas, The track was a bit challenging for me. To the top of the hill facing Lion's Rock, we need to climb a cliff.
At first I and the other trekkers felt a bit hesitant but with directions guide, we arrived at the top too. For those who are afraid of being in high places, these peaks can be a scary moment. We need to be careful not to be too close to the cliff as the sudden blowing winds can cause unexpected accidents to happen.
Once we are at the top, I take as many pictures as possible and enjoy the wind blowing from the South China Sea. Really refreshing!

A weekend or extended trip to Pulau Kapas will be a trip that you’ll never forget.  The beaches are amazingly beautiful, the underwater life is incredible, and you’ll get stuck in the relaxing island vibe.
