Mount Faber is a hill about 105 metres in height, located in the town of Bukit Merah in the Central Region of Singapore. It overlooks the Telok Blangah area, and the western parts of the Central Area. The summit is accessible by Mount Faber Road or Mount Faber Loop via Morse Road, but there are many footpaths or trails leading up the hill. The main paths are: Marang Trail which leads from Marang Road at the Harbourfront MRT station (Exit D) and the Southern Ridges Park Connector which connects you from Telok Blangah Hill Park, Kent Ridge Park and Henderson Waves.
It is a frequent tourist destination, as it provides a panoramic view of the increasingly dense central business district within the Central Area. Its slope includes a tower that is part of the Singapore cable car system that connects to HarbourFront and Sentosa. It is accessible from the HarbourFront MRT Station.
The vegetation around Mount Faber is secondary rainforest that is smaller and less dense than on Bukit Timah Hill. Mount Faber is one of the higher hills in Singapore at 106 metres (348 ft.), lower than Bukit Timah Hill (164 m (538 ft.)) and Bukit Gombak (133 m (436 ft.) and 113 m (371 ft.)). It is separated from the adjacent slightly lower Telok Blangah Hill by Henderson Road.
