21-Apr-2016 -- On my way back from Hailar to the Harbin Airport I tried visiting this confluence thinking it wouldn't be too difficult, as it is close to the road. But once there I found that even if part of it had burned down most of the area is covered in flooded fields.
I had brought some Wellington boots for cases like this, but it was not enough. The boots were only knee high and the water kept getting deeper. In the end when I was 800 meters from the confluence I turned back and kept driving to Harbin.
