What is Hai Van Pass, Vietnam?
Hai Van Pass is also called Ai Van Pass or May Pass, has the height of 500 meters and the length of 20 meters, cutting across Bach Ma Mountain Range between Thua Thien-Hue Province and Da Nang City, Vietnam.
Hai Van Pass has breathtakingly and beautiful scenery, all year round white clouds covered the top of the pass while at the foot of the pass is the vast sea scene stretching to the horizon. According to historical records, the Hai Van Pass used to be the boundary between Dai Viet (Vietnam) and Chiem Thanh. Later, the Ho Dynasty took troops to fight Champa, the king of Chiem, so they cut the land to reconcile. Since then, Hai Van Pass belongs to Dai Ngu – which is Vietnam nowadays.
