30-Apr-2007 -- This was our second try to reach this confluence point. Again we drove from Bangkok to Umphang, stayed one night in the middle of the jungle and started in the morning at 6:00. We tried a different way than the month before. After 5 hours of walking and climbing we managed to come as close as 2.65km to the confluence point. From this point, we had to return as there was for one no real forthcoming anymore and secondly we still had to go back to Bangkok that day. In total we walked around 12km in dense jungle with numerous river crossing. On our way we passed a very impressive sight: a tree that had been transformed to ashes by lightning the previous night and that was still smoldering and smoking.
