Took some pics this morning to share as Ipoh is also known as Kinta Valley which was famous for it's tin mining in the early years.
The city is surrounded by the mountains ranges such as Titiwangsa (main range) and Kledang Range. Here one can ride a days loop on each side such as the western side which has the Kledang Range and the Perak River. Alternatively one can also ride the Cameron-Jeli-Gerik-Ipoh loop which cross the Titiwangsa from west to east and back from north east of the state as one would have cover 3 states in a days ride ie- Perak, Pahang & Kelantan.

The later is a mountainous ride with plenty of sweeping curves uphill and downhill.

View of Titiwangsa (Main Range) from roof top which divides west coast and east coast of Penisular Malaysia eg between state of Perak & Kelantan.




An eyesore of the city.....cement factory

Yes Colin. It may be useful to show some nice mountainous loops around Ipoh and the neighboring states of Kelantan & Pahang just like those that you have rode during your visits here.

Petrol is reasonably cheap and food is good though hotels is slightly more than LOS.
