From Pengkalan Kubor I took a rural road which follows the bends and curves of Sungai (river of) Golok upriver towards the town of Rantau Panjang. Except for the occasional distance and trees and suck blocking the view, you could practically see the river all along the way. Came a point I feel I must take propers pictures So I turned right passing 2-3 kampung or village houses and positioned the car facing the river before stepping out.
A look downriver. While I don't know the name of the place where I took these pictures or remember the exact point and location I could make a smart guess based on certain factors. Among the factors being I left Pengkalan Kubor and took the junction into this rural road at 6:28pm (it's written in the pictures property) and arrived here at 6:35pm. Taking Sungai Golok at Pengkalan Kubor as shown in the previous article as Point 1 let me mark this place as Point 2.
A look across. Remember it is the country of Thailand seen there. Getting back to the factors, it means it took me 7 minutes since leaving Pengkalan Kubor to get to this place. I believe I was travelling at an average speed of 60 kmh negotiating the twisting and turning road. So this place must be about 7 km from Pengkalan Kubor give and take a kilometer or so.
A look upriver. It seems I have made the right guesses and calculations regarding the location of the place.
A check using the tools on Google Earth program shows Point 2 lies across a junction into a smaller rural road. While this trip was close to half year ago I do remember seeing such a junction to my left but taking a small path to the right to get close to the river. There was a military check point near that junction and I believe what I've surmised here tallies with the actual experience.
