#1: north view from confluence

(visited by Werner Beiergroesslein)

12-Jun-2002 -- Coming from Thessaloniki on the mainroad E86 I turned north, direction of Aridea and Sosandra. About 4km west of Sosandra I parked the car at the cemetry of the little village Likostomo, while the GPS shows the confluence 1.5km in northeast direction. Up a hill I follow a winding trail, which I have to leave after a few hundred meters, crossing a rough, dry meadow covered by lots of thistles. On the other side of the hill the confluence happens to be behind an uncrossable long hedge of bramble. Following alongside the hedge for about 200m I find an breakthrough through the hedge and find myself in a field of clover, which is flater and deeper than the surrounding area and contains the confluence in an altitude of 300m on one of its longside edges. I reached the confluence at 16:15pm. Pics 1-4 show the view from the confluence in north, east, south and west-direction, pic 5 the GPS on the confluence. The mountains you see on pic 1 and 2 belong to Nidze-chain and behind these mountain lies FYROM (former yugoslavian republic of Macedonia), pic 3 and 4 give you an idea of the thorny hedge surrounding the cloverfield.

Leaving the field on the other side I find an agricultural road which would have made it much easier to approach the confluence. Following visitors should try to find the small road approaching not from Likostomo but maybe from Sosandra, from eastern direction.
