Pha Din Pass

Pha Din Pass

Pha Din Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.648m (5,406ft) 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 paved. It’s called QL6. The winding road is very dangerous with 8 scary turns just enough for one car passing.Be careful: this road is not for the sissies. One mistake can have consequences. 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. If you're afraid of heights, it's probably best to keep your eyes forward.
