27-May-2017 -- Durante nuestro viaje alrededor de Bolivia (La Paz - Oruro - Huanuni - Sucre - La Higuera - Vallegrande - Samaipata - Santa Cruz - Trinidad - San Borja - Yucumo - Caranavi - La Paz) pasamos relativamente cerca de este Confluence Point. Así que decidimos ir a visitarlo. Analizando Google Earth encontramos un camino de auto que nos acerca hasta 2 km del CP.

En ese lugar hay un pequeño pueblo donde dejamos el auto y empezamos a caminar. Hay que bajar hasta un río, cruzarlo y al otro lado subir el cerro un poco hasta llegar al punto de confluencia. Solo al principio hay un sendero, el resto hay que hacerlo a campo traviesa, pero no es un terreno complicado. Pero a la vuelta el ascenso es relativamente largo y cansador debido a la altura. El paisaje es árido pero bastante bonito e interesante. Sacamos las fotos correspondientes, disfrutamos de la vista y retornamos al auto para continuar con nuestro viaje.

26-May-2017 --During our Bolivia round trip (La Paz - Oruro - Huanuni - Sucre - La Higuera - Vallegrande - Samaipata - Santa Cruz - Trinidad - San Borja - Yucumo - Caranavi - La Paz) we passed quite close to this Confluence Point so we decided to visit it. Analyzing Google Earth we found a road that leads until 2 km from the CP.

There is a small village where you can leave the car. Then you need to continue by foot, walking down the hill, cross the river and climb another hill until you reach the CP. At the beginning there is a trail but most of the walk is cross country, but it isn't too technical. Only on the way back it is a long uphill that can be exhausting due to the altitude. The landscape is dry but beautiful and interesting. We took a couple of pictures, enjoyed the views and returned to our car to continue our trip.
