Cu Chi Tunnels

Cu Chi Tunnels

The tunnels of Cu Chi were built over a period of 25 years beginning in the late 1940s. They were the improvised response of a poorly equipped peasant army to its enemy's high-tech ordnance, helicopters, artillery, bombers and chemical weapons.

The tunnel system stretched from the South Vietnamese capital to the Cambodian border: in a district of Cu Chi alone, there were over 250km of tunnels. The network, parts of which were several storey deep, included innumerable trapdoors, specially constructed living areas, storage facilities, weapon factories, command center and kitchens.
