Vietnam’s most thrilling mountain pass

Ca Pass is a high and winding mountain pass with dangerous roads in central Vietnam which offers a serene view of Vietnam’s landscapes.

A 10-km road running along the pass is located between Phu Yen and Khanh Hoa provinces. It is some 30km south of Tuy Hoa City in Phu Yen Province.

Travelling on the pass road, passengers can enjoy the beautiful spots of Vung Ro Bay. During war time, Vung Ro was a base to receive weapon transport ships from the north to support the southern battle. Vung Ro is also recognised as a national cultural and historical relic.

The road has bending and winding sections that are a challenge for the abilities of drivers. At this time of year, huge mountains are covered with mist and fog. From the road, visitors can enjoy countryside landscapes with paddy fields surrounded by mountains, creating a wonderful picture.

ACTIVETRAVEL ASIA would like to recommend Motorbiking the Ho Chi Minh Trail - Complete Challenge tour.The legendary Ho Chi Minh Trail was the supply line used by North Vietnam to link North and South Vietnam during the American War. Soldiers, ammunition, weapons and supplies were carried by hand, bicycle and truck for hundreds of kilometers through the otherwise impenetrable jungle that covered Vietnam’s mountainous border with Laos. A testimony to the ingenuity, fortitude and commitment of the northern Vietnamese, the trail slipped from use at the end of the war and was taken back by the jungle. Recent road work that follow original sections of the trail have changed this. Besides incredible driving, deep in the Vietnamese countryside, this ride takes in the charming ancient trading town of Hoian, Khe Sanh battle site and DMZ. We also take time to stay overnight in a traditional Thai hill tribe and visit to some tribal villages on the way.
