#1: The confluence is very near the top of the hill

(visited by Leo Liang)

12-Apr-2003 -- I went for this confluence twice.

First time is 6-apr-2003. I can't find a detail map of the area of the confluence, only know that it's in Chang'an Town. I began my tour 10km away from the confluence, at first I took motocycle, but later I found that the confluence is in the mountain, so I began to hike following a path. It was a raining day, the ground was very muddy, but the scenery was very beautiful. After 3 hours walk, I gave up because the time is late, I must go back or else I couldn't catch the bus.

A week later, I went for it again. Took a bus to Taiyigong where I left last week. Walked south follow the road to Cuihua Mountain. I found the confluence is in a hill just beside the gate of Cuihua Mountain Park. The hill is 330 meters height. To my surprise, the confluence is very near the peak, only 30m away from it, and it's 12 meters off the path. Though I got lost on the hillside, but arriving to the confluence was not very difficult.

Here is the detail I wrote in Simplified Chinese
