#1: Mountain on which the Confluence is located

(visited by Ahmed Esfandnia and Amin Saeedi)

29-Mar-2006 -- Due to our New Year (Nowrooz) I went to Iran, my home town Evaz, just to spend the holiday with my family, and it was the best chance to go for one more Confluence, which was not much close to us, but it was good to search for it on a rainy day.

We left Evaz at 7:15 a.m. and passed through Gerāš, Lār and Laṭīfī. After Laṭīfī, we went to left from the main road, on a road called Šāh-e Gheyb Road. This is a protected area, and it was totally silent and a straight road. We didn't see any sign of human, till we reached to dead village of Šāh-e Gheyb. From Šāh-e Gheyb we had to go along a poor road, which was not much friendly to our car. We spent almost 30 minutes till we reached to a point that offered no more ways to our destination, and we had to stop down and walk.

From Evaz to this point took us about 2:30 hours. Unfortunately, the Confluence point was now on a mountain, which was really hard to climb, and it took us about 3 hours more to climb the mountain and to get close to the point, but as the exact point was on top of the mountain, and we couldn't climb any further as we had no climbing tools, there remained one second of a degree to reach the exact point - but I think we did it, as one second is not much.

In this journey Mr. Amin Saeedi, my father-in-law, was the best partner with me, and we enjoyed it a lot, he really wishes to continue finding more points in this area. Soon you may find more points from us, as it seems we are the only active confluence hunters in Iran by now.
