    Drive the windy back road from Chenderiang, turning off the main Tapah to Kampar road at Chapatti Corner. through to Kuala Dipang. On the way see Lata Kinjang, the hidden waterfall and later drive through the Sahom highlands and see verdant forests and Senoi villages along the way.

    Stop off for a tea tarik and chapattis - some of the best to be had in Perak,at Chapatti Corner, the staff are friendly and the food authentically Northern Indian.
