Turn right up track and pass under highway. If you pass hot-springs, you have gone too far.
Romantische Strasse – Take old Bentong Road – you can actually do this from Jalan Pahang in KL (old road to Genting) but more sensible option is to take Karak Highway, pass thru toll and exit at Bukit Tinggi onto old Bentong Rd – exit left, drive under highway and pass BP station on right. (see details in restaurant map below). This is a very pretty drive. Proceed down old Bentong Rd for approx xx Km, passing hot on left springs, until small river crossing as above. Look for HHH signs. Turn off left up dirt track, pass under highway and follow directions as below.
Proceed up the side of the river, thru picnic spot. Cross log bridge and follow tracks for run site at red metal bridge. Park on both side of the bridge.
