The torrential rain and dazzling sun are the endless chorus in this journey that is only approximately 100 km long but challenging. Many times a whole herd of more than 10 “innocent” cows rushed out into the middle of the road, despite our loud honking. Some experienced members have to step on the brakes and “just pedal just” because folding and accelerating the brake will be very expensive. Not to mention many cyclists or motorbikes who naturally walk slowly in the middle of the road at a speed of … 15 km / h.
After nearly 2 hours of persistence, we reached Prenn Pass, a mountain pass with picturesque majestic mountains but promising to “squeeze” every drop of 16 Honda cars. This is the way to find the difference between an experienced driver and the “novice”. This is the time when downhill skills are maximized. Every gas pedal gesture, the brake pedal phase is as sharp as possible to both consume less fuel and ensure safety. The landscape of Prenn Pass is extremely beautiful with clouds of mountains and all kinds of giant primitive forest trees, but we can not stop to admire. Driving for about an hour, surpassing the countless passenger buses to Dalat, we finally arrived at the second stop: the Du Parc Hotel is located near the famous Xuan Huong Lake.
