Travel from Genting Highlands

Most travelers will start their journey from Kuala Lumpur, the nearest city which is linked by a highway and two major trunk roads. Visitors from Singapore will first travel to Kuala Lumpur (3 hours) via the North-South Highway. From Kuala Lumpur, the most popular route is the Karak Highway which is accessed from the end of the MRR2 Freeway in Ampang/Gombak. Drive time takes about an hour, with a distance covering approximately 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 MYR5, but free access is available via trunk route from Batang Kali/Ulu Yam (from Rawang) or Gombak (old Bentong road).

Buses  travel by bus from KL to Genting daily from various destinations around Kuala Lumpur, either directly to the resort or ending at Genting Skyway (cable car station). Departures continue throught the day and night at ticket prices between MYR5-12, depending on location from KL. While there are special routes from major shopping malls and urban residential areas, catering mostly for gamblers, the major bus routes begin from KL Sentral, Pudu Sentral (Puduraya) and Terminal Putra LRT Gombak. There are also express buses from Singapore and other states across Malaysia (check local listings).
