Situé à mi-chemin entre les provinces de Son La et de Diên Biên, le col de Pha Din fait partie des sites incontournables du Nord-Ouest. Si le panorama est époustouflant, Pha Din est surtout associée à la victoire de Diên Biên Phu. Il y a 65 ans, les troupes vietnamiennes et les jeunes volontaires empruntaient ce col pour ravitailler en nourritures et en munitions le front de Diên Biên Phu.

Nguyên Van Ky habite la ville de Son La. Ses jeunes années passées à Pha Din sont à jamais gravées dans la mémoire de cet ancien jeune volontaire, aujourd’hui âgé de 84 ans. En mars 1954, Nguyên Van Ky avait 19 ans et il commandait alors l’escadron 294 chargé de combler les trous immenses causés par les bombes. Il se souvient de la côte Mèo, l’un des lacets les plus dangereux et les plus bombardés par l’armée française. Un jour, raconte t-il, un obus est tombé et le passage des véhicules est devenu impossible. Pas question pourtant de laisser la route en l’état car le convoi de ravitaillement dirigé par le colonel Dinh Duc Thiên devait emprunter ce chemin. Le jeune Ky et  les douze membres de son unité ont tenté alors pendant des jours et des nuits de combler cet immense cratère; en vain. Finalement, il eut l’idée incroyable de construire un pont avec des troncs de bambou assemblés les uns aux autres au dessus du trou. Tiếp tục đọc “Le col Pha Din – le chemin héroïque”
