09-Jan-2012 -- We approached this confluence point 21N 58E after conquering :) 22N 58E. We travelled on the Highway 32 towards Mahut and left the highway at the spot where the highway turns towards al-Wusṭā region of Oman.

Initially, it was a black-top for a few kilometers, and thereafter a hard gravel track took us closer to our destination. The gravel track became softer and softer and gradually disappeared into the soft sand. Thereafter, we had to create our own track until the soft sand merged into the wide salt pans. The confluence point 21N 58E is on the soft sand but on the edge of a wide salt pan.

Now it was time to trackback towards Mahut, but only after we had clicked the required pictures.
