In underdoped cuprates, only a portion of the Fermi surface survives as Fermi arcs due to pseudogap opening. In hole-doped La$$_{2}$$CuO$$_{4}$$, we have deduced the "coherence temperature" $$T_{coh}$$ of quasiparticles on the Fermi arc above which the broadened leading edge position in angle-integrated photoemission spectra is shifted away from the Fermi level and the quasiparticle concept starts to lose its meaning. $$T_{coh}$$ is found to rapidly increase with hole doping, an opposite behavior to the pseudogap temperature $$T^{*}$$. The superconducting dome is thus located below both $$T^{*}$$ and $$T_{coh}$$, indicating that the superconductivity emerges out of the coherent Fermionic quasiparticles on the Fermi arc. $$T_{coh}$$ remains small in the underdoped region, indicating that incoherent charge carriers originating from the Fermi arc are responsible for the apparently metallic transport at high temperatures.
