How to Get to Cameron Highlands from Kuala Lumpur?

Reaching the Cameron Highlands from Kuala Lumpur is a breeze, offering options to suit every traveler's preference. Here's how you can get there:

1. Bus

For the cost-conscious adventurer, hop on a comfortable bus from the bustling Terminal Bersepadu Selatan (TBS) in Kuala Lumpur to Tanah Rata Bus Terminal located in the heart of Cameron Highlands. Tickets are budget-friendly, starting around RM 35 one-way and the journey takes about 4 hours.

2. Car

If you want to drive yourself, here are the two main options:

Tapah Exit 132/Route 59: This is a shorter route through mountain passes and populated areas, offering a faster travel time. However, be prepared for winding and narrow roads, which may not be ideal for those who get motion sickness easily.
Simpang Pulai Exit 137/Route 185 (Recommended): A toll road with wider and straighter roads, offering a more comfortable and scenic ride, but the journey takes about 30 minutes longer.

3. Tour

Opting for a Cameron Highlands day tour package is a great way to experience the Cameron Highlands without the hassle of planning. These packages typically include comfortable transportation, a meticulously crafted itinerary encompassing must-see sights, and the insights of an informative English-speaking tour guide. Most hotels and tourist information centers offer tour packages, so inquire during your stay to find the perfect option for you.
