Accessed by the scenic Tapah toll road from the North-South Highway,
road distances to Cameron Highlands are as follows:
From Kuala Lumpur, drive
north on the North South Highway. After an estimated 1.5 hours drive,
take a left at the Tapah / Cameron Highlands turn off. Pass the
toll booth and take a left at the traffic lights ahead. You are now on
the one and only road up the hill. Drive on this road. You will
reach Lata Iskandar waterfall on your left after approximately 30 - 40
minutes. A tip while driving up the hill is that should you be driving
behind a heavy vehicle, wait for its signal to overtake. These are
experienced drivers who will indicate to you the right moment to
overtake their slow vehicle. The first town you will arrive is
Ringlet. Just after the town is the electro hydro dam on your right.
Continue on and after another 30 minutes, you will arrive at Tanah Rata
which is the main administration town of Cameron Highlands. Carry on driving and you will hit
Brinchang town. Drive through and after another 20 minutes, you will
reach the Resort where you will need to take a right turn into the
Resort driveway. The total drive journey from Kuala Lumpur to the
resort should take you about a leisurely 3.5 hours.
