#1: About 700 meters from the confluence point

(visited by Navid Khadem)

25-Apr-2008 -- Studying maps and Google Earth beforehand, I found out that the nearest village to the point is Beryānchāl. So I had to find the way to this village. But after visiting Khovārs on 5 April, I found that the way to Beryānchāl is over too high mountains and lots of high cliffs that are hard to pass through. So the only way to the point is through Sorheh.

After analyzing some maps and visiting these villages near the point like Sorheh and Khovārs and asking some people who had lived there, I decided to find the way to this point.

On 25 April me and my father went there to find the nearest roads to the point. After finishing an asphalt road to Sorheh, we reached a mountain unsurfaced road to Beryānchāl. Going through and looking on my GPS, I found that the road passes about 675 meters from the point.

But there are still two mountains and valleys between us and the point and some cliffs that we do know nothing about. As it was too late to go through these mountains and the sunset was already coming, we decided to continue our way to Beryānchāl and return home finishing this visit unsuccessfully.

P.S: We have visited this place again successfully on 6 May and I will submit it as soon as possible.
