We plan to travel by road for a day trip to Jerantut from KL to visit the Elephant Sanctuary and then back to KL that same day .. however we would like to visit other intresting places in the immediate area ..how far and how long would it take to detour to Gelanggi Cave .. Meraung Waterfall .. and is there a Orang Asli village nearby where we can perhaps visit .. blow pipes etc .. experience a glimse of the life they lead .. any help or other suggests .. please
Although you are near enough to go to the places you listed above, the thing is, they are not very accessible. You either have to hike 2-kms or so to the caves or take a boat up the river...to the village.
Hence suggest another 1-2 nights to fully experience the whole thing. If not, just go to the sanctuary as planned.
