E - 惊艳指数 WOW Factor : 
如从Bedong使用1号公路前往Gurun，须留意右旁的Shell添油站。添油站不远的交通灯路口就需转左进入Gurun Jaya住宅区，并前往Lorong 1 Taman Gurun Jaya。通往油棕园的路口就在这。
If driving from Bedong by using road no.1 to Gurun, take note the Shell petrol station on your right while reaching Gurun town. Turn left into Gurun Jaya housing estate at the traffic light junction which is not far away from petrol station, procced to Lorong 1 Taman Gurun Jaya. The main entrance to the oil palm plantation is around here.
We have not much info about the route to Kunyit Fall, only have a blur printed map from Google map and a (maybe waterfall) GPS point from a friend. We followed the dirt road in the map which also exist in the reality, try to get close to the point. We obeserved there are any flowing streams, and prayed hardly don't come to a dead end.
Walked up a gentle slope, we found the plantation dirt road is continued as jungle trail after a stream crossing. We felt blessed that we didn't pick the wrong route.
The terrain is obvious and flat, lying on the left of the Sungai Kunyit. Sungai Kunyit is a black water river & Kunyit is turmeric in Malay Language, i think that's the reason why local call it turmeric river.
Some beautiful cliff along the way.
About 30mins walking, we reached the waterfall. If you come with motorbike, it's more convenient and faster.
The unique Kunyit Fall.
