SALT - CARE
CARE stands for Christian Adventure Recreation Exercise. We organize various types of walks which cater to the different fitness and interest levels of all participants. We have also started a weekly resistance band exercise group.
Walks are usually held on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays catering to different levels.
Level 1: Easy
Minimal elevation, mostly paved flat paths, hike at slow pace, less than 2.5 hours. Route is suitable for those on wheelchairs.
Level 2: Moderate
Some elevation, paths may be uneven, rough, rugged and may include slopes e.g. forest trails, hike at moderate pace, exceed 2.5 hours. Hiker is able to walk 1km, about distance of 3-4 bus stops in 15 minutes.
Level 3: Difficult
More elevation with steep slopes, rugged and undulating terrain, hike at fast pace, exceed 3.5 hours. Hiker is able to walk 2km in 25 minutes.
Level 4: Challenging
More elevation with very steep slopes, extensive rugged and undulating terrain which may have more than 100 steps per section, hike at fast pace, exceed 4 hours. Hiker is able to walk 2km in 20 minutes.
We conduct brisk walking training at regular intervals to equip beginners (or anyone interested) with the right skills to combine deep breathing with brisk walking techniques in order to hike safely and for longer distances.
Special walks such as local heritage and cultural trails, Coast-to-Coast hiking and others are conducted occasionally. Overseas travel trips may be organized from time to time.
All activities are announced in the WhatsApp chatgroup SALT-ANNOUNCEMENT. Do take a look at our photo gallery below. Contact us for more details or to discuss on the level of walks suitable for you.
