I reach the 4037 and an asphalt surface at N18.42.544 E098.51.282 only to spot that I was not following the track on my gps but a new unmarked one so I backtrack a bit to ride the other one
Image
This track is dirt to where it meets the 4037 at N18.41.918 E098.51.850
Image
I turn right onto the 4037 and ride towards the Ob Kahn NP

I walk over and go for a look around but no luck here, I can hear it but not reach it

Image
I need to get further downstream but on the other side so its backtrack a bit to before I crossed the river
