If you’re looking for a morning walk or a brief hiking, why not head over to Bukit Singai in Kuching, Sarawak. But first of all, we would like to highlight that this place may not be suitable for everyone. It’s more sort of a religious place but free for anyone to visit, so if you’re not interested, you may want to skip this one.
“Bukit” in Malay literally means “hill” so yes, this is a hike in a jungle that requires some “going up” but you are compensated with the refreshing air, the beauty of mother nature and most importantly, stronger leg muscles. The trek is made up of long stairway leading up to a hilltop where a Catholic Church and Religious Retreats seats. Along the way up, you will also see 12 monuments erected every few meters. Each of these monuments represents 12 days leading up to the crucifixion of Jesus. The trip up would take about 35 minutes to reach the top, depending on your fitness.
For those who’s seeking spiritual guidance, place of meditation or just to look for a quite place to find inner peace, this is definitely the place worth a visit.
There is no entrance fee required if you are planning a visit here but donation is welcomed.
Transportation wise to this location may not be convenient however. We’re not so sure about the availability of public transport to reach this place except taxi but if you’re driving, you may follow the map provided below.
