The complicated and scenic way:
Take Jalan Kuching out of K.L.. Remember the Jalan Kuching toll plaza, well set trip meter to zero there. At 3.6 km, exit left for Kuantan/ Kepong. At the roundabout above Jalan Kuching (4.0 km), take 3 O'Clock Exit towards Kuantan. As you approach Batu Caves, take the left slip road at 5.1 km. At the bottom of the ramp, keep left (sign-posted Ulu Yam Baru). Batu Caves should now be on your right! Go over railroad tracks, and at 6.2 km, turn right at traffic lights (a mosque will be on the right). At 10.1 km, turn right (again sign-posted Ulu Yam). Follow this scenic road past the reservoir and into the hills. At 31.6 km, immediately after crossing a bridge, turn right at T-junction. Bear right past Thou Yen Restaurant and then bear right again at 32.4 km going onto laterite road. Follow signs , park cars near Hare’s car ABC 1234.
Alternative Directions, no different in time:
You may take the crawl via the NKVE, exit at Rawang and then go north on old Highway 1 through Sungai Choh and Serendah. A little north of the Serendah Golf Course, turn right after the Pasar Raya (Market); a solitary building on your right before meanandering through the road works for the bridge over the double tracking for KTM. There is a sign posted Ulu Yam Baru. Pass through Ulu Yam Lama and then into Ulu Yam Baru. On the far side of UYB, keep going straight past the turn-off for Batu Caves (adjacent to a river bridge). You will pass the Thou Yen restaurant on the left hand side, and then continue on as above.
