#1: West view from the confluence

(visited by nya)

20-Aug-2004 -- After visiting five confluences 47N 107E, 46N 106E, 46N 105E, 46N 104E, 46N 103E, and staying two night in Arvayheer, it is time to go back to Ulaanbaatar. Going about 60 km on paved road and I am on the earth road again. Approaching to the confluence, the road becomes worse and the scenery becomes great. Along the river there are sand dune and trees. It was one of best scenery on this trip.

Getting near, between river(left) and mountains(right) I head north toward the confluence. GPS says the destination is right hand, up somewhere on mountain. I found slight earth road climbing mountain. Going up and near the peak I could not go further by motorcycle because of valley so I walk down the valley and climb up the hill. The confluence is located at the rockey steep slope. I was very exhausted to cross valley fully equiped with motorcycle riding gear. Unlike other five confluence, it was located on mountain.
