Pha Din Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.648m above the sea level, located on the Son La and Lai Chau Provinces border, in Vietnam. The terrain is very rugged with cliffs on one side, and the abyss on the other.
The road to the summit is asphalted. It’s called QL6. A quick glance at the map at its sheer drops and serpentine twists and turns, confirms that this is no hype. The winding road is very dangerous with 8 scary turns just enough for one car passing. The drive is 32km long. This drive continuously zigzags through 32 kilometers road flanked on one side by rocks and the other by deadly drops.
