Continue along winding mountain roads through North Vietnam’s stunning countryside in the afternoon. The most picturesque scenery here is Pha Din Pass, which is well-known as a historical site during the First Indochina War, which ended in 1954, and a charming and dangerous pass at an elevation of 1,300 meters with a breathtaking view. “Pha Din” means “the link between Heaven and Earth,” according to local legend.
