The Rockpile (Thon Khe Tri), a Marine outpost built on top of a huge outcropping. Though it's inaccessible, it's a prominent sight from the highway. Next is the Dak Rong Bridge, one of the main branches of the Ho Chi Minh Trail, which leads south to the A Shau valley and infamous Hamburger Hill. Though not entirely legitimate, there is a monument commemorating it as a point on the Ho Chi Minh Trail. Khe Sanh Combat Base, just east of the Lao border, was the site of a US base that fell under attack in early 1968. The attack of the NVA on Khe Sanh was a diversion for the 1968 Tet Offensive in the south. The old airfield of red dirt still remains. Then return to Dong Ha town for lunch.
