What you can see during the tour
Hai Van Pass: Hai Van Pass or Sea Clouds Pass offers an impressive landscape of verdant mountains and clear blue skies, overlooking Da Nang City, Tien Sa Port, Son Tra Peninsula, and the South China Sea. Crossing over a spur of Truong Son mountain range between Thua Thien-Hue Province and Da Nang City, it stands at 500m above sea level, making it the highest pass in Vietnam.
The 25 kilometre-long mountain pass is popular amongst thrill-seeking motorcyclists due to its winding roads, sudden curves, and blind corners, while its lookout point offers gorgeous views of Da Nang Bay.
Ngu Binh Mountain: Ngu Binh Mountain is also known as Ngu Mountain or Hon Mo or Bang mountain with 103 meters height on the right of the bank of Huong river. It is far about 4 kilometers from Hue city to the south. Two sides of this mountain have two small mountains: Ta Bat Son and Huu Bat Son. The Nguyen royal dynasty decided on Hue palace.
Along with the Huong River, Ngu Binh Mountain is the gift of Nature, blend with the Huong river to become the symbol of Hue nature. People usually call Hue the area of Huong River- Ngu Mountain.
Huong River: Deriving from Truong Son range, the two springs Ta Trach and Huu Trach meet at the junction of Tuan (or ‘Bang Lang’ used in administrative speech) and create Huong river.
