Hai Van Pass is the natural boundary between Thua Thien - Hue province and Da Nang city. Many tourists are impressed by Hai Van Pass’s dazzling panoramic views on the journey to discover the central region of Vietnam.

Hai Van Pass has been the highest mountain pass in Vietnam with a height of 500 meters above the sea level. This rugged pass is the final section of the Truong Son Range stretching to the sea. Whenever exploring Hai Van Pass, travelers will get an unforgettable experience.

The sudden curves and blind corners can create different feelings. Hai Van signifies “Sea Cloud” because the peak of the mountain is in the clouds, whereas its foot is close to the sea. It has the lush jungle on the one side and the sea on the other. The crooked road winding along the mountainside looks like the ribbon like crossing the heaven and earth.

Hai Van pass is located on the mountain branch that reaches the sea of Bach Ma range. It also forms a climate boundary between northern and southern Vietnam meaning it may be cold and rainy on one side and hot and dry on the other.

If you're lucky, when you reach the top of the pass, you will see some sun and some rain. There are still some traces of a gate called Hai Van Quan and a few bunkers built by French military to protect this strategic pass. Hai Van Pass has been considered the most beautiful scenery in Vietnam.

This is really a monumental natural painting created by the wonders of the Creator and the talent of the man-made. And especially, the camera is an indispensable thing for you to record beautiful photo frames./.
