#1: Panorama picture of the confluence

(visited by Martin Mayrhofer and Hans Augdoppler)

02-Jun-2001 -- This point isn´t very easy to reach. The road ends in a small village called Branisov (about 5-10 houses).

Hans asked a German speaking guy (you can see them on the pictures) if there is a small track to the confluence, but it wasn´t easy to explain to him what we want to do. He always thought, that we want to climb the Hill. So we walked about one hour up the hill and down on the other side. The confluence is situated in deep forest, so the GPS had problems to get the position. On our way back to the car it started raining again, so we were very wet. The surrounding is really nice (if its not raining). Small villages, huge forests, green grass, very few peoples...
