Hill seen during the move from An Khe to LZ Uplift. Visible on top of the hill are possibly the ruins of the ancient Cham center of Cha Ban or the Banh It Towers...not certain, but the area around Qui Nhon has quite a few ancient Cham structures. In the 11th century, the Cham people migrated southwards and moved their capital city to a location about 30km north of present-day Qui Nhon and named it Vijaya. It survived until 1471, when the citadel was sacked by the Vietnamese.
