One of the best ways to see the areas is to walk. Since the townships and settlements are small, it is best to explore these areas by foot. For example, Brinchang is the largest town and you can walk from one end of the town to the other end in 10-15 minutes. Those interested in walking longer distances may want to take the 4 km walk between Brinchang and Tanah Rata. However, do bring along an umbrella just in case it rains.
