The legend of Cu Mong Pass Phu Yen?

Cu Mong Pass contains many anecdotes and stories from ancient times.

Visitors to Cu Mong pass are sometimes still told by the moss:

“The sound of anyone crying and begging

The animal soldier’s wife on Cu Mong island “

The origin of this poem is said to be a touching love story of a wife sending her husband to a male soldier to fight the enemy. They split up on the Cu Mong pass . The young woman’s crying and crying must be far from her husband, but anyone is resentful. Someone also told that this is the cry of the women in the journey “to the south”. At that time, the mountains were still dangerous without traffic as nowadays, traveling was difficult. 

To reach the south, we must climb a pass to wade streams. Anytime at Cu Mong PassThe mountains are dangerous, the mountains are steep, the two sides are cliffs, many wild animals, almost when they come here, women cannot pass here, partly because of illness, partly because of the dangerous difficult road. . So there appeared to be cries of anyone here. 

Many pure nights here appear young sounds, chirping with the wind where the wild boar’s mountain sucked farther away, making the bravest woodcutters stay in this mountain pass at night. In order for the souls to rest, the people on the other side of the pass (Binh Dinh people) have built a so-called spirit am. From then on, people could hardly hear these cries anymore.
