08-Oct-2006 -- This confluence point is quite easy to go to. Finding the way out of Dubayy is the most difficult part, and then it's just one hour drive from Dubayy to the East on paved roads, then 7.5 km on a dirt path, and the last 400 m involve a little bit of climbing and stumbling over rocks and stones.

The DCP lies within a mountainous area on an elevation of approx. 300 m and it's just 2 km away from the border to Oman. The JETT mark mentioned during the visit on 29-Nov-2001 is deteriorating but still recognisable.
