25-Mar-2006 -- The story continues from 30N 53E.

From 17 to 30 March 2006, which was Iranian New Year holidays (Nowrouz), my family and I traveled around and through the deserts of Iran.

When we reached Kermān, it was about 5 o'clock p.m., so I had little time to visit the point before darkness. I departed from Kermān to the Jūpār road. After 14 km I exited to a secondary asphalted road which goes to Bāft. At a point 1.5 km far from the CP, I exited to a minor temporary way toward the point.

As I mentioned before, this point had been visited by Rainer Mautz on 5 September 2004. He explains that a railway was under construction. This temporary way had been made for railway construction. On my visit, the railway was ready to use and there were no workers around. The way passed beneath a railway bridge (a dry river) and after 700 m I stopped the car and walked the other 800 m. I had to pass a few hills (no problem, I am an amateur climber!) until I reached the point. It was in the middle of a rather steep upward slope. A beautiful summit of the Jūpār mountains was visible at the SSE direction, partially covered by snow.

Overall, the observations reported by Rainer Mautz were correct and accurate. There was no interval change except that the construction of the railway was (fortunately!) completed.

The story continues at 31N 55E.
