#1: Location of CP

(visited by Thomas Barthel)

21-Feb-2009 -- With this I did my second visit of a Confluence Point. It is one of the two CPs on the dry land of Cyprus and it is located in a beautiful valley in the north-east of the Troodos Mountains. This on was in nothing to compare with the one nearby Agia Napa. Of cause it is a different landscape in the mountains, but in addition to this it was cold, raining and hailing with strong winds!

I approached the CP from direction East by passing Tseri, Deftera and Agios Marina until the valley was reached, which leads to Spilia. With this report in mind, I found the right turn-off and the mentioned logger track easily. It was about noon when I arrived at the ‘closest point with car’.

I parked it 70 meters away from the CP on that track and climbed up the steep slope. Ok, it was breath taking but not that horrible I thought, after reading the report from visitor #1. So I reached the area of the CP and prepared the camera for the pictures. But, as I already thought by reading the previous reports, it was not so easy to find the correct location on such a gradient. Furthermore the Smartphone, GPS mouse and the digital camera got wet very fast, caused by the really bad weather.

All the time I had to clean the displays and to protect my camera. But finally I got the required picture from the device, showing exactly the 35N/33E Confluence Point. After that I did the photo from the location with a distance from about 10 meters and of the four directions. Nearly frozen I went down to the car and switched on the heating system.

Lucky with my successful visit I started my way back home.
