The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism has recognised Hoang Lien Son Pass in the northern province of Lai Chau as a national landscape site.

The 50km pass links Lai Chau and Lao Cai provinces, and is one of the longest and most magnificent in the north.

At its highest point, it is nearly 2,000 meters above sea level and covered in clouds all year round. The pass has beautiful landscapes and waterfalls.

Locals, including the ethnic Dao and Mong peoples, sell their agriculture produce at places along the pass and also run small eateries selling hot baked corn, sweet potato, eggs, and com lam (rice cooked in a bamboo cylinder).
