CITIES & PLACES OF
Hai Van Pass
21 kilometer long
Hai Van Pass is a coastal mountain road in
central Vietnam that connects Hué with Da Nang.
It crosses a spur of the Annamite
Mountain Range, which forms a
major geographical barrier that divides the North from the
South, both climatologically and in historical context.
The pass runs along the South China
Sea and is renowned for its scenic beauty. Its name
translates as Ocean Clouds and refers to the mists that
often rise from the sea and hamper visibility.
It features bays with sandy beaches
and at some point even forms a peninsula with an
adjacent island. At the road's summit is a historical
gate and fortress (fig.).
