Here are a few options for getting to Moonriver Lodge if you do not have a car. Guests are advised to plan their journey well in advance to avoid confusion.
ON A BUDGET: Public transportation
For those who are budget conscious and keen on embarking on an adventure of navigating the Malaysian public transport system, here’s how you can save a few ringgit on your journey here.
- Make your way to Kampung Raja which is the closest town to Moonriver Lodge.
- Take a public or chartered bus from the main bus terminals in Kuala Lumpur [KL], Penang or Ipoh to Cameron Highlands.
- Before the bus departs, try to request the bus driver to drop you off at Kampung Raja. If he/she declines, you will be taken to the bus station at Tanah Rata in Cameron Highlands.
- From Tanah Rata, you may either take a taxi or a public bus to Kampung Raja. A taxi seats 4 persons and costs around RM80-90. The public bus departs every 2 hours and costs around RM8-10.
- For your onward journey after Moonriver Lodge, we suggest buying bus tickets in advance. If you are travelling to KL, Penang or Ipoh, you can buy a ticket from the counter at the Kampung Raja bus stop (rates in the table below). If you are travelling to Taman Negara, you will need to book a transfer from Tanah Rata and stay overnight at Tanah Rata the night before your departure.
Important: We recommend for you to purchase tickets for your onward journey from the Kampung Raja bus stop instead of the Tanah Rata bus station. This is the only way you can board the bus from Kampung Raja. If you purchase tickets from Tanah Rata, you will have to make your way there to board the bus.
