#1: The Confluence View

(visited by Asif Awan, Asif Mahmood, Ali Mahmood and Hammad Asif)

03-Sep-2005 -- This is the first confluence we have visited. From Chakwal, we drove to Talagang, the road was in a very bad shape, and it is being repaired. From Talagag, we turn to north and went to Tamman. We had tea and talked to local people, they were very helpful and cheerful people. One guy guided us to a small road, which will reach the indented place, whereas we were thinking of going on foot. When the GPS shows that only one kilometer is left we park the car and went to the direction. But when only 690 meters left there was an impossible down fall of the land, we decided to go back for alternate way. There was an old man, who guided us for the way. We drive about three KM on the road and turn left to an unpaved path. When the confluence was just 500 meters a head, the hilly area again begun. This place is known as Dhoke Hakima. There we left the children and went to it. When the GPS became zeros for north and east minutes and seconds, we have taken the snaps. While on return back, the sun gone down and it was very difficult to remain on the road after the trucks and long vehicles on the unrepeated road.

But, and this is the big but, our digital camera failed to take the picture of the GPS, only the zoomed picture gone blur. Anyway, it was a good experience. We are planning visit again. Next time, the place is known, just we have to take the pictures.
