Confluence hunting is a very cool hobby (www.confluence.org). You must somehow get to the intersections of latitude and longitude that are whole numbers (ie. 'something' 'point,00000') all over the world.
I have now made 2 attempts to get to the last remaining, 'unfound' point in Thailand: 15 North 99 East. The point is located in a kind of jungle area near Kanchanaburi , Thailand. But my travel partners to attempt these points have already gone home!
I have just discovered some hidden roads or paths that can get us to about 1.8 km from the point - the last portion may require jungling. We would rent a 4-Wheel Drive vehicle in Kanchanaburi for about 2500 Baht/day - we can try to get the price lower.
It could be tricky to actually get on these roads, but I found them on Google Earth. The area is a beautiful national park region and Karen minority people live there.
Anyone interested in an authentic adventure?

If Karen live there it's not a never visited place as you say.

They live in the region, but there is so little human habitation, it could be that human's have never walked in the region of the point.

Could be the case in lots of remote jungles. 99.9% of the ocean has never seen humans, care for a swim?
