Cloud Forest

If You Dare ... Enter the Cloud Forest, a mysterious world veiled in mist. Take in breath-taking mountain views surrounded by diverse vegetation and hidden floral gems. And learn about rare plants and their fast-disappearing environment.

Inside the Cloud Forest, you immediately hear the sound of rushing water. Explore the tropical highlands amidst orchids, pitcher plants and ferns from the cool-moist Tropical Montane region. Be amazed as you encounter the world's tallest indoor waterfall at 35 meters and descend through the surreal mist-filled Cloud Walk and Treetop Walk. Step into the Crystal Mountain Cave and discover the many interesting shapes of real stalactites and stalagmites. Discover more about geology, how the continents formed, the age of earth, and the importance of fossils in understanding our planet’s past.

In the Lost World explore cloud forest vegetation typically found at around 2,000 metres above sea level. Look out for carnivorous plants such as pitcher plants and the Venus Fly-catcher, against a carpet of delicate ferns and moss, while enjoying fantastic views of the Marina Bay waterfront.

Conclude your visit with a stroll around the Secret Garden. Discover the new landscape of more than 7,000 plants of more than 135 species and hybrids in a representation of limestone forests and caves. Many of the plants belong to the gesneriads, begonias, orchids and ferns families, as these plants are commonly found in these habitats.

Don’t forget to catch a glimpse at the new installation of miniature orchids. They are so tiny that you will need to view the blooms through a magnifying glass!  See our photo albums for more images.
