Why Long Lanh Pass is special ?

Long Lanh (Shimmer) Pass is known for its radiant beauty in the early morning mist which also affectionately named Omega by tourists, derived from the graph-shape of the pass. The official name of Long Lanh Pass is Hon Giao, a short route connecting romantic Da Lat and the coastal city of Nha Trang.


The Long Lanh Pass is located in Lac Duong district, Lam Dong province. It is also called Khanh Le, Bidoup and Omega. Each name has its own meaning, attached to the mountain, to people or the characteristic beauty of this pass. With the length of 30 km of the total length of over 200 km of the road, the pass is a destination for tourists for its poetic beauty.

What to explore at Long Lanh Pass?

Compared with many passes stretching from north to south, Omega is a pretty strange name. It has been known since the provincial road 723 linking Nha Trang and Da Lat was built.

Following the road to the Than Tho Lake, through Thai Phien commune, the home to vegetable and flower gardens, you will travel on a path through the forest to the suburbs and then the new road connecting the flower city of Da Lat and the coastal city of Nha Trang.

The sun gradually rises up–the first rays of light gently dispel the morning mist, revealing a magical space on the pass. That’s the Omaga Pass at an altitude of 1,700 m.

The sun rises highly, ripping the dense fog to open a painting of nature under the pass. It’s majestic scenery with green hills and the house of Raglai people far away.

The downhill is equally interesting when you “fall” from a height of 1,700 m to 1,000 m and 500 m. Looking back, the scene has changed remarkably. In front, the coastal city of Nha Trang is welcoming.

How to get to Long Lanh Pass?

If you start your journey from Khanh Hoa, you only need to go to the Thanh intersection in Dien Khanh district and inquire the way to Da Lat; local people will be enthusiastic to guide you. The advantage of this starting point is the quite flat road.

If you depart from the city of Da Lat, you will experience a little bit of difficulty because the first 10 km is incomplete. However, you can arrive at the Omega Pass more quickly than the other road, so you have more opportunities to flash the most beautiful moments when the sun rises on the pass. That is the only moment when you can feel all of the shimmering beauty of Omega.

Tips for you

  • Before your trip, you should prepare a full gasoline and a tool kits, as there's no one to help you on the road.

  • This road is winding and extremely steep so whether you're skillfully driver, you must focus on holding the wheel through the "elbow" as up to 50 degrees steep.
    Things to do
  • If you're not familiar with driving on the pass, you have to keep your speed as low as possible, around 20 - 25 km/h.

  • Along the road, you will pass several ethnic villages. It's a chance to take some photos, especially, you can visit "nha rong" - a type of unique stilt house.
    Things to do
  • At the foot of the Pass, you can stop to enjoy a cup of iced coffee at Ben Loi Coffee shop to relax. From here, the journey will take you to Nha Trang.
    Drink
  • If you go really early in the morning or very late in the afternoon, you will be submerged in the space of dense fog that limited visibility in only 5m distance.
    Timming
  • The round trip from Dalat to Nha Trang by Long Lanh Pass can be done in half of day, but if you have more time, you should drive along sea road in Nha Trang for a new experience.
    Experience
  • At an altitude of 1500m on the Pass, you will feel really cold, so you should bring a jacket.
