The confluence point is in Kanupur which is around 4 km northwest of Akkelpur Upazila. We started our journey on 1st May 2014 from Dhaka reached Joypurhat at 7:30pm and overnight stayed at local hotel. We started for confluence point at 9:00am by battery powered auto rickshaw from Joypurhat to Kanupur bazaar. The journey was about half an hour and we reached the destination at 9:30am. We started to walk through village road following the direction on the GPS towards 25N 89E. After 25 minutes exactly at 9:54am we reached the confluence point. The point was found to be in a rice field and we had to walk to find the degree confluence of 25N 89E with a GPS accuracy of 10ft.
It was a wonderful confluence experience. Eventually we made our 6th confluence point visit successful.
