The spectacular Ngoan Muc Pass is 43km southeast of Dalat. On a clear day you can see the ocean, 55km away. As the highway winds down the mountain it passes under two gargantuan water pipes that link the lake with the hydroelectric power station at the base of the pass.
South of the road (to the right as you face the ocean) you can see the steep tracks of the crémaillère linking Thap Cham with Dalat. At the top of the pass there’s a waterfall next to the highway, pine forests and an old train station.
