(visited by Abdul Karim Khadim, Afaq Hyder Shah and Mohammad ayoob)

12-Aug-2007 -- On 11th August Saturday I went to attend the wedding ceremony of Aftab Chandio the elder son of my friend Mr Mukhtar Chandio at Hyderabad. The function was in the evening and we all enjoyed it. While coming to Hyderabad I discussed regarding visit to this confluence which is near Sann in Dist Dadu with my nephew Afaq Shah who also came to attend the wedding. He shown his interest to join me as he has been giving me company in visiting the confluences in Sindh in past too.

Sunday 12th Aug after taking breakfast we stared our journey to Sann on my Toyota Vigo. Afaq already called one of his friends in Sann and told him to arrange some local guide for us. We reached Sann at about 10am and the local guide who was a doctor by profession was waiting for us. He offered us soft drinks and then we left for confluence site.

We had small track for about 8kms but there after we drove on barren hilly area. The land was barren and hilly and in our opinion never visited by someone. After drive of one hour we reached in the foot of a hill and our GPS was showing the point was about 1km far. There we all got down and started to climb on hill which was about 300 meters high. We reached top of hill then we found that there was a valley and another hill between us and the confluence point. It was mid noon and temp was about 42*C. We came down and decided to postpone our program of visiting this confluence. On our way back Afaq shah advised to try again through other valley to go near the confluence point. We managed to reach at about 500 meters from the confluence point and from here there was no way to drive. We parked the vehicle and started walking towards the point. It was difficult way but we managed it by passing through Nallah and reached confluence point in about 20 minutes. We all were very happy and it was something new for our local guide Doctor Sb. We took the necessary pics and started our return journey after completing our successful confluence visit.
