Worked out some points with Ogle until Bkfast time after which we started from the village & thence on Plane Tabling to Aphomai another village on hill above. We are now close on the tri-junction of the waters flowing to the Irrawaddy, Brahmaputra & Soorma & there can be no doubt about the watershed of Munipur running thence SE.
