Pengkalan Hulu, PerakPengkalan Hulu, Perak (31 August, 2016)

Pengkalan Hulu (GPS: 5.70566, 100.99885) is a town in Hulu Perak. Located on a section of northern Perak between Thailand and Kedah, the town was formerly known as Keroh, or Kroh. Many places here still have the name Kroh attached to them. The nearest town to it is Baling in Kedah. It is one of the entry points from Thailand into Malaysia.

Pengkalan Hulu has one of the three local district councils in Hulu Perak, the other two being Gerik and Lenggong.

Due to its proximity to Thailand, there is a border crossing at Bukit Berapit, 7 km from the Pengkalan Hulu town centre. Across the border is the Thai town of Betong, in Yala province.

The main road through Pengkalan Hulu is Route 76, which is known as Jalan Iskandar when it passes through town. [an error occurred while processing this directive]
