(visited by Peter Grieve)

05-Aug-2004 -- While working in the area we were close to the confluence so decided to find it. Luckily it was right on the side of a track through an oasis area not far from the border with China. Despite being in the middle of the Gobi Desert and mid summer, the day turned out to be wet, windy and very cold.
