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.
