(visited by Mirko Nitschke, Hartwig Lüthen, Mathias Straube and Andy Sischka)

16-Nov-2001 -- Our group of German amateur astronomers (Hartwig Luethen, Daniel Fischer, Bernd Heinrich, Sirko Molau, Mirko Nitschke, Petra Rendtel, Andy Sischka, Mathias Straube, Jörg Strunk) was visiting Korea in order to observe the Leonid meteor storm of November 18/19 2001 and to see some highlights of this beautiful country. Travelling on the road No. 28 (Angang-Yongchon) we noticed, that there was a unvisited confluence point nearby (about 1 km).

Two days later we started an approach to visit the confluence point at a crossroad at E 129°00'07".5, N 35°59'29".2'. There was a path through a small village. Later, we climbed a woody hill and bypassed a military installation. After descending the hill slope on the other side we reached a small lake and a driveway. This led us conveniently to a farm building in the correct direction. There was nobody on the farm except some dogs. We crossed the farm area and found the confluence point on the terrain of a vineyard.
