The scenic background of Ma Pi Leng Pass

Ma Pi Leng is translated as “the nose of the house” in local language to say about how challenging this location is to reach for anyone. At the height of 2000 metters high compared to the sea level, its terrain is so steep with vertical mountains & deep valleys that the horse’s power can not overcome and they even die on the way – being illustrated as the horse’snose.

Ma Pi Leng Pass  is around 20km long zigzaging up & down along high mountain slopes – the most difficult part of the Happiness Road to be built connecting Dong Van & Meo Vac district – two remote mountainous frontier districts of the country !In the passt, to construct this road part, thousands of workers & volunteers had to cling themselves on the cliffs to open every centemeter of the path. It was such a challenging terrain that many volunteers & workers lost their lives and took them 11 months to complete this part of the road.That’s why the pass of Ma Pi Leng is likened as the Great Wall of Vietnam.The Happiness Road & its amazing pass of Ma Pi Leng is a lively evidence of strong cooperation & great efforts among young volunteers & local ethnics in the country toward the nature’s obstacles.Thanks to their sacrifice & great contribution, the road was opened to make the gap shorter between the highlands & the lowlands of Ha Giang province, to bring happiness & more chances to develop for thousands of people in the region, and importantly to defense the nation’s territory.
