Driving Your Own Car

Most motorists will start their journey from Kuala Lumpur, the nearest city which is linked by a highway and two major trunk roads.

Driving time is about an hour, with a distance of 35km to the peak.

The seemingly slow drive is due to the windy and steep mountain road that starts from the base of Genting Highlands. The Karak Highway charges a toll rate of RM5.00, but free access is available via trunk route from Batang Kali/Ulu Yam (from Rawang) or Gombak (old Bentong road).
