Hentian Pekeliling is over 20 years old and is basically a simple bus station where you can go to the major towns of Pahang. One or two companies also go to Kuala Terengganu, Genting Highlands and Gua Musang. It is located at Jalan Pekeliling Lama and just beside Vistana Hotel. Getting here is easy as it is within walking distance from Titiwangsa Ampang Line LRT and Titiwangsa monorail station. This terminal really needs some upgrading to keep abreast with the changing times.

Of particular interest is Jerantut as this town is the gateway to Taman Negara. Those who are taking a boat from Kuala Tembeling will take a bus from Jerantut to Kuala Tembeling jetty before taking the 3 hours boat ride to Taman Negara.
