Located at a height of 2000m above sea level, O Quy Ho pass is one of many landscapes that Creator has given to the mountainous region of Sapa Vietnam. This pass is located on Highway 4D, the intersection between Lao Cai and Lai Chau provinces. For a long time, O Quy Ho Pass is no longer strange to “travel enthusiasts”, especially those who often wander around to explore the country on winding passes. O Quy Ho Pass is known as one of the “four great passes” besides Khau Pha, Pha Din and Ma Pi Leng Pass. Going through this pass, on one side is a deep abyss, on the other side is a steep cliff, will definitely make Sapa tourists feel the majesty of the Northwest mountain and forest nature.
Summer time is the most ideal
Summer time is the most ideal for those who want to escape the summer sun, and Sapa Vietnam is not too cold like winter. Coming here at this time, you can see clouds playing halfway up the mountain, then at noon there is bright sunlight shining but not too hot like in the city. At the end of the afternoon, when the sun gradually goes down, O Quy Ho is at its most beautiful with golden streaks of sunlight then gradually turning red and pink, shining on every road, tree, and people’s hearts. The suggestion is that if you are not afraid of heights, you can visit the Rong May glass bridge to best enjoy this scene. In winter, tourists have other more romantic activities with this pass. That is “cloud hunting”. When the weather is colder and the temperature is lower after rain, the clouds will lower.
The period from November to March
The period from November to March is when the clouds are thickest, forming floating “seas of clouds”. The higher you are, the lower the clouds are at your level of vision, sometimes even below your feet. Even though it’s romantic, O Quy Ho is also a dangerous and winding pass. Visitors to Sapa Vietnam will probably have a heart attack every time they can’t see what the road ahead looks like, then burst into surprise.
However, it is also a joy for every visitor to this mountainous area because in that arduous and dangerous environment, there are picturesque images of endless mountains and forests that no words can describe. You can only come and feel it yourself. On beautiful, cloudless days, you can also see the majestic Fansipan mountain peak. If you stand in a quiet corner of the pass, you can still hear the rushing sound of Silver Waterfall in the distance.
