The complicated and scenic way.

If coming from KL, take Jalan Kuching, which turns into Jalan Ipoh, heading North towards Batu Caves.
At the Batu Caves junction (with the MRR2), take the exit up to the roundabout above Jalan Ipoh, and take the 3 o'clock exit towards Kuantan.
About 1km later, as you approach Batu Caves, take the slip road left sign-posted Ulu Yam.

(you can also get here via the MRR2)

Keep following signs for Ulu Yam, to follow the curvacious elevated road over the railroad tracks by the new Batu Caves station, and about 1km later, turn right at traffic light (a mosque will be on the right), continuing to follow signs for Ulu Yam.

4km later, turn right (again sing-posted Ulu Yam) and follow the scenic winding road past the reservoir and into the hills.

As you are about to enter Ulu Yam Baru, you cross a bridge and reach a t-junction.
Turn right here, go past Thou Yen Restaurant, and then bear right again, going onto a Chinese kampong road

Follow signs and park near Hare's car WGE:9392.

Alternative Direction, no difference in average time you may take the crawl via the NKVE and North-South highway, exit for Rawang, and then go North on old Highway 1 (Old Ipoh Road) through Sungai Choh and Serendah.
A little north of the Serendah Golf course, turn right, sign posted Ulu Yam Lama.
After the now defunct Pasar Raya (market); a solitary builiding on your right before passing over the bridge over the double tracking for KTM.
There is a sign posted Ulu Yam Baru.
Bypass Ulu Yam and then into follow the road into Ulu Yam Baru.
On the far side of Ulu Yam Baru, keep going stright past the turn-off for Batu Caves (which crosses the bridge mentioned in the earlier directions).
You will pass the Thou Yen Restaurant on the left hand side and then continue on as above.

if you cannot follow these directions, follow who can! Good Luck!
