(visited by Moshiur Khandaker)

29-Dec-2013 -- Confluence 23N 92E is located in a hill forest near the village of Manikchari about 2.5 km southwest of Māschari in the Khagrāchhari Hill District in Chittagong Hill Tract region in Bangladesh. The landscape is hill forest.

Bangladesh Adventure Club's confluence mission's members to this southeastern confluence in Bangladesh were Moshiur R Khandaker and Nur Mohammad with local CNG auto drive and guide Sunayan Talukdar.

The confluence point is in the Khagrāchhari Hill District which is around 266 km south east of Dhaka city. Two of us started on 29 December 2013 at 8 am in the morning by bus from Feni to Khagrāchhari. The journey was of approximately 7 hours and we reached the destination at around 2:30 pm in the afternoon. We started to follow the directions on the GPS towards 23N 92E. At last after 30 minutes exactly at 3:01 pm with some difficulty we were able to reach the confluence point. The point was found to be in a hill forest and we had to track to find the degree confluence of 23N 92E with a GPS accuracy of 18 ft.

It was a wonderful confluence experience. Eventually we made our successful 3rd confluence point visit.
