Keppel Hill Reservoir

Trekking up the small road uphill, we saw a dirt track to the left of the small road.  I said to Isaac, “That’s the entry point, we need to turn in and continue trekking, this would soon lead us to Keppel Hill Reservoir”.

Just a bit more, we were going to reach our destination that we wanted to explore. I saw a foot path opened up by human beings, my explorer and …
