05-Jun-2008 -- We departed from Mašhad on 5 June 2008, to visit the ancient windmills of Naštīfān, near Khāf, in northeastern Iran. These are the world's first windmills and some of them are still operational! See two videos of them here and here.
When returning, we decided to visit the confluence point 35N 61E, which looked to be nearby. So we entered the road to Nīlšahr (previously Nīlābād). We passed a few small villages (Manṣūriyeh, Dowlatābād, Robāṭ, Malekābād, Gāv Chešmeh). At Malekābād, we asked a local guide (Mr. Nabi Kabudani) to accompany us, as the area might be unsafe (it is very close to the Afghanistan border). Then we entered a gravelled track which lead us to a point as near as 220 meters to the Confluence; and we walked the rest.
Our car was a Nissan Roniz 4WD.
