Get yourself to the Batu Caves roundabout on MRR2.
Proceed north towards Batu Caves and Rawang on the old highway 1.
This is the road that continues from Jalan Kuching to go under the MRR2, past Batu Caves and Selayang, over the hill to Templar Park (Taman Rimba Templar), Commonwealth Park (Taman Komonwel), and on to Rawang and Ipoh.
… but we don’t go that far!
Whether you’re coming from KL on Jalan Kuching, or somewwhere else on the MRR2, set your trip meter at the Batu Caves roundabout and head North towards Rawang/Ipoh.
Go under an overhead walkway at 0.6km.
Go under a Malaysian ‘Gate into/outof the City’, with clock tower, at 1.3km.
Go under road flyover at 1.7km.

Pass ‘Wisma Eagle’ on the right at 3.9km.
Go steadily uphill, and take the slip road left at 4.8km … no particular signpost, except some ‘Malaysian Centre of something’. [Be careful, … if you miss this, you have to go all the way to about 6km, to 1km past Taman Rimba Templar to do a U-turn, and to remember to take the first traffic slip road (as opposed to a housing development one) off left to turn right at the traffic lights to join on to where the next direction will take you … signposted Kepong.]
Turn left just before the lights, at 5.4km.
Overshoot the entrance to Bukit Lagong – which is on the other side of the road at 6.4km – in order to take the next U-turn at the lights at 6.7km.
