Bentong is located in western Pahang, Malaysia. It’s about 80km from Kuala Lumpur and approximately 90 minutes drive via Lebuhraya-Gua Musang.
So, why Bentong?
Because Bentong Half Marathon 1.0 will be held on December 16, 2017. And it’s going to be a great getaway for a REAL Makanthon trip.
If you are driving, do stop over at Lentang Forest Recreational Park (Hutan Lipur Lentang) at Km48 Kuala Lumpur-Karak Highway. This also happened to be the lunch stop-over for my yearly KL-Maran pilgrimage walk.
Durian season is still ongoing so you can make your way to this popular Jimmy’s Durian Orchard at Km75.1 Jalan Karak.
And of course, if you opt for public transport (which I will), you may board the bus from Terminal Bus Pekeliling, Kuala Lumpur. Bus services start from as early as 7.30am.
