Last night, while having dinner at the food court in Kepong, we suddenly decided to go on a day trip to Lanchang to visit two special places which we always wanted to visit but never got the opportunity to do so, namely Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary and the Lanchang Deer Farm. Another reason why we suddenly came up with this decision was also because my parents came down to my place and we just wanted to take them around.
Both the above places are located in the same town of Lanchang which comes under the state of Pahang. The decision being made, we all got up early and were ready by 0900. We left the house at 0930 headed straight to the Shell Petrol Station here, unfortunately the station ran out of stock. With the little petrol we had in the car, we head straight towards Batu Caves to join the Karak Highway, the oldest highway in the country. Along the way, luckily we managed to find another Shell Petrol Station and filled up accordingly. With the distance required to travel, 20 liters of petrol was sufficient. We entered the Karak hhighway at sharp 1000.
Luckily, the highway in now extended right up to Kuantan. The stretch from Gombak to Karak is the same old highway. We had to pass two toll stations, first at Gombak where we had to pay RM 5.80 and the next at Karak where the toll charge was RM 2.00. Then we connected to the new Kuantan highway and took the transit ticket there. The old highway stretch is a very dangerous stretch with narrow ways and hair pin bends, please bear in mind the speed limit is 90 KMpH all the way until you connect to the new highway where it resumes to the norms of 110 KMpH.
