Chi Lang Border in Lang Son: Vietnam Destination Guide by First Choice Travel

The Chi Lang Border is in Chi Lang District, Lang Son Province, 110km from Hanoi and 60km from the Sino-Vietnamese border.

The border consists of a valley surrounded by high mountains and through which runs the Thuong River. The mountains were opened in two locations to form two gates. The northern gate was named Quy Mon Quan, meaning "monster gate," after the Chinese invaders who entered Vietnam through this gate. The southern gate was called Ngo The, meaning "swearing gate." Vietnamese ancestors who swore to sacrifice their lives to protect their motherland and to prevent invaders from entering Vietnam via this border built the gates.

In was in this area that Le Hoan King defeated the Chinese Tong troops in 981 and killed all the enemies. In 1076, Prince Consort Than Canh Phuc set a front line against 300,000 Tong enemies. Led by Quach Quy in 1285, Nguyen Dia Lo killed traitor Tran Kien in the second National Resistance against Nguyen-Mong invaders. In 1427, Lam Son righteous army killed rebel leader Lieu Thang, caught Hoang Phuc, killed 10,000 Minh enemies and overthrew all their maneuvers.

Now Chi Lang Border is considered a historical vestige with imposing landscape where visitors stop to enjoy the natural scenery.
