    Road Conditions: Raub-Sg Koyan

    The route that we are taking, includes the stretch Raub-Sg Koyan-Kg Selendang, which is an alternate route for those heading from Raub to Gua Musang. It bypasses Kuala Lipis. There are roadsigns in Raub that refer to this route as Jalan Alternatif ke Kota Bharu. While the standard trunk route that goes through Kuala Lipis is Route 8, our route use C5 (Raub-Sg Koyan) and C156 (Sg Koyan onwards) before rejoining Route 8 near Kg Selendang.

    Some of you may be wondering about the road conditions along this route. I've attached 3 pics of my recce drive (back in Jan) of the C5 (Raub-Sg Koyan) stretch. Generally quite smooth and straight (many sections recently resurfaced), better than the road outside my home in KL. I drove this road twice recently during the morning of public holidays, and on both occasions, traffic was light. The main "obstacles" would be patches of cow dung on certain parts especially near Tersang, so watch out for cows on the road.

    C156 (Sg Koyan onwards) is generally similar but has more turns.

    Which waterfall do you mean? There are a number in CH. I know of one, I think it's Robinson falls, within a long walk's distance from Century Pines (I've walked there). There's also Parit Falls I think... maybe closer to Century Pines (saw a sign that said 400m) - but no personal experience. I'm still planning on the full day tour as some of the places are inaccessible unless you go by 4x4, and the Boh Sg Palas plantation is very nice especially after the renovation (I went before renovation) but I dare not bring my UDM in on that road.[/QUOTE]

    not too sure myself on which waterfall, never been there le bro..all i have heard is that the falls in C.H are nice..LOL..:creep:

    Looks like I am kicked out of the jammed vanos cheetah group. since they don't welcome me in their group maybe because my vanos is not jammed. I am pulling from the drive.

    Since you did not buy the Beisan vanos seals from the group buy, we know your VANOS is all right and we know you have a big ESS Twin Scroll supercharger inside your car, you automatically in the superchas group with your taman Desa buddies. Or you want to join GT-34 in the 517i group?
