So we have left Cameron Highlands. So we were already in Kelantan. From the junction to Kampung Raja we were already heading downhill from the top heights of the main range called Banjaran Titiwangsa. But it was after the Pahang-Kelantan border that the journey downhill began to look obvious...
Just look at the way the road goes.
I'll bet you can free the gear and get to 100 km/h in no time by just relying on the pull of gravity.
But take no chance. Never ever be on free gear. Instead go on low gears and ready the braking foot as it can be quite steep...
These parts also have its fair share of long greenhouses.
Ahead is the junction to Lojing. While the whole area after Cameron Highlands on to here is already in the small district of Lojing, the signboards refers to its small town.
There is a proper settlement around if I'm not wrong what you see here is a school.
Next is the junction to a place called Air Panas.
Further ahead you can see a peak which looks like a pyramid.
Stopping by one side I began to snap pictures of some mountains.
For the record this is the second time I drove this stretch of the road. The first was almost 2 years ago. I was then on my way back from the East Coast heading towards home in Selangor.
However that trip was not only made the opposite direction, that is from Gua Musang up to the Cameron Highlands, it was made during the dark. Look at the article The night trip from Gua Musang to Cameron Highlands....
Tied up with some things at other parts of Kelantan then, I couldn't arrive soon enough to make the climb up this road during daylight. So I had to forgo my desire to enjoy the views around. Since then I was waiting for the day when I would take this road again with everything nicely in view. And this finally came about on 25th December 2010, Christmas day. Here's how the 'pyramid' peak looks from near on...
Then there's a part under works...
Next I could see a rather peculiar looking hill or mountain.
