Hai Van Pass-Lang Co Beach is recognised as one of central Vietnam’s major outstanding attractions. The Hai Van Pass (means Ocean Cloud Pass) is about 21km stretching from Thua Thien Hue Province to Da Nang city along the slope of Hai Van Mount. It is considered an important natural wall blocking wind from the north. So Da Nang City and the provinces from Quang Nam province to southern Vietnam have warmer weather and no winter season.
Whenever one crosses the Hai Van Pass (the top of which is 500m above sea level), also known as “De Nhat Hung Quan” (which means the most colossal frontier post) two feelings are experienced. Amazement at passing through the clouds and excitement when seeing how much the road bends and winds. For many centuries, the Hai Van Pass has been a source of inspiration for Vietnamese and foreign writers, poets and photographers.
Lady Buddha pagoda, famous for the Goddess of Mercy statue, faces the Eastern Sea. On the left is Cham Island, to the right is the Hai Van Pass. The pagoda was built on 12 hectares of land on Son Tra Mountain. It symbolizes belief and the nation. It marked the development of Vietnamese Buddhism in the 21st century.
