There are a few ways to get to Batu Gajah which includes buses and taxis that leave regularly from KL's Puduraya bus station.
Our transport came as a part of a package deal, departing from our KL accommodation, with MM Adventures on the White Water Rafting @ Kampar River Tour.
Because there was only myself and my two teenage kids we travelled there in Mike's gold Mercedes. Michael is the owner of MM Adventures and will use either a mini van or his own Merc depending on the tour numbers.
There's a new road coming up. Actually it'll bypass the town. It starts at a point near Kellie's Castle, pass through the new rail station (on the road to Tanjung Tualang) and end s at Bemban (road to Lumut).
