(visited by Philipp Funovits and Anna Steiner)

14-Aug-2005 -- This Confluence lies beneath a lake near the small village Kichik Dachna. When we studied our maps we figured this would be an easy one, judging from the facts that the area is flat, and that the nearby village would be a good starting point.

We started from Sheki, and left the bus at the turnoff to the gravel track leading to Kichik Dachna. The GPS showed about 10km Distance. We walked one or two kilometers, before we managed to stop a car. The Driver was a local farmer whose farm lies somewhat beyond the western end of the town. He brought us within 5km distance from the confluence.

We left the road and started approaching directly through the harvested fields. The terrain was easy, almost no vegetation, the only obstacle were some irrigation canals. Several big sheep herds were grazing on the dried remains of this years crop. Luckily it was a cloudy day. Neither of us would have endured the 8 kilometers we had eventually to hike in this semi desert, if the blazing Azeri sun would have burned down that day.

Our main concern beforehand was that the confluence could be actually lying in the lake. But it turned out not to be the case. We reached the Confluence without any problems, took the pictures and walked back to the eastern end of Kichik Dachna where we organised a vehicle to bring us back to the main Road to catch the bus to Ganja.
