(visited by Chen and Rong Zhang)

11-Dec-2004 -- To find this confluence, we go twice. First time is Nov.20,2004, We stop at 120 meter far from the confluence around a road and turn around because of the darkness.

The second time is on Dec.11,2004. We total 6 people(Zhang, Baobao, Maomao, Xiaocai,Weiwei and Chen) go out from Shanghai at about 8:00 am along HuHang, HangJinQu and JinWen highway.

Part of HuHang highway was blocked because of the fog. We have to turn to 320 National highway at Fenjing town. Then drive to HangJinQu highway near Haining, then drive down to Yongkang, arrived near confluence at 15:40. There is a fluorite mine near it. It took us 8 hours to arrive there which is 4 hours more than usual.

About 600 meter from confluence, We got off. The parking altitude is about 192 meter. We choose a steep way to reach it. There're trees, bushes and brambles on the mountain. We reached the spot at 16:35. Because of too many branchs, the GPS signal drifted. We couldn't try every point because it's too steep. The alititude is about 322 meter. We spend 50 minutes to walk there. The whole distance is 820 meter and the altitude is 130 meter.

The confluence is located in 1.4 KM from northwest of tuokeng village, 1.5 KM from northeast of dongchen village, 1.8 KM from southeast of Fangcun village and 10 KM from north of Yongkang.
