22-Jun-2011 -- Today is 12th day of our travel. We went from Naran to Ongon soum early morning. Our purpose was to mark an unknown point with the Mongolian State, Battsaiz security`s, and Khadgalamj bank`s flag. During the travel, we confronted many difficulties, such as: uncertain road, a wrong turn in the mountains would take us into a ravine. It was raining hard. We strayed from the right road to the border post. We were lucky then because we encountered a local family. They told us the right road and then we were on the road until evening. At twilight we reached in the the Batsaikhan family, at a place called Sungurug of Ongon soum.

Batsaikhan know a good road so we set out looking for the point. After dark, we reach the point not far away from Batsaikhan family`s place. We reached our intended point when after dark and in the rain. We want to mark the point place by something but there was no stone

People who participated in this trip with me were Mr.Erdenebayar and Mr.Narangerel.

Coordinator's Note: This visit is classified incomplete because it does not meet the photo requirements of the project.

The confluence project strongly discourages the marking of confluence points
