#1: The Confluence from 62 km Distance

(visited by Rainer Mautz)

04-Feb-2022 -- The Seychelles have no visit until now – even not an incomplete report. The reason is, that there is no confluence point on land on this little archipelago. But not only this – the main group of islands is located in the centre of 4 confluences. Therefore, a visit requires a deep-sea ship that can travel 2 x 50 km in the Indian Ocean.

To be honest with you: I didn’t even attempt a visit. Despite the trouble and costs, it must be a really clear day to see some sort of land. But the highest peak could be visible with its hight over 900m.

CP Visit Details:

  • Distance to a road: 62 km
