The unexplored areas of Lorong Halus

Located about 1.5km away from the Lorong Halus Wetland is the start of Lorong Halus itself just off the Tampines Expressway (TPE). I chanced upon this relatively untouched habitat as I was cycling around the area and decided to take a look at what seemed like an almost untouched part of Singapore’s nature save for the longkang dividing two sides of the land.

Traversing a relatively flat but muddy path, a walk through the dense vegetation revealed interesting discoveries like a bunch of ground woven spiderwebs, colourful kingfishers and other birds that scurried away too fast, as well as a lone fisherman who took back an impressive catch as I left.

For all the parks and restricted army training areas we have, visiting this part of Lorong Halus made me realise how little untouched natural habitat we have left in Singapore that’s openly accessible to the public. Though hard to get to, it is nice indeed to be able to discover more about nature by yourself once in a while.
