05-Oct-2009 -- When passing on the tarmac road, we noticed the near confluence point. A short check said it was "only" 20 km away, but since one has to circumdrive some hills on the way, it ended up to be a 25 km long drive - offroad through nice desert and some great wādiys.

Unfortunatly - even with some nice spots around - the confluence point itself was pretty boring. But the drive to it was very rewarding due to the nice scenery. On the way out it got a bit late and we had a beautiful bushcamp in the area.

Hint: If you want to go there, do a southerly loop around the hills!
