Exploring underground village of Cu Chi Tunnels with VN Bike Tour

Away from 70 kilometers northwest of the city center, Cu Chi Tunnels is the favorite destination of many travelers, especially those who love to explore the history of Vietnam. The tunnel system is nearly 200 kilometers long. This is a very elaborate, logical and scientific design, located in Cu Chi District, Ho Chi Minh City. The whole vestige includes two main tunnels Ben Duoc and Ben Dinh.

Cu Chi Tunnels were formed in 1940s, in the struggle for Independence of Vietnamese people. It took over 20 years to create such a massive system with the Cu Chi locals’ great effort. At first, the tunnels were individually formed. It was not until the climax of the war, those tunnels were linked together to create a continuous and great tunnels. This is not only a safe haven but also a place for living, health caring, weapons manufacturing of VC soldiers and Cu Chi locals as well. Besides, there are many assorted spike traps inside and even outside the tunnels area while it was a real jungle in the past. You should visit Cu Chi Tunnels once in your life to understand more about the strong will, tenacity, intelligence, creation, and the pride of inhabitants over there and see clearly a symbol of Vietnamese revolutionary heroism.

The tunnel system is divided into 3 floors: the upper floor is about 3 meters below the ground, the middle floor is 6 meters from the ground and the lower one is 12 meters deep. Each floor has different functions. For example, the lower floor is the safest one, so it was usually used as emergency rooms, weapon rooms, and secret meeting rooms. The entire tunnel system is dug in the sandy soils, so it has high durability, and less sinking. When entering the tunnel system, visitors will have to stoop down or crawl through the narrow tunnel. Just visiting a short tunnel section is enough to give visitors a more practical and understandable experience of the arduous struggle of the VC soldiers.

The door of the tunnels is arranged by the secret hatch covers. On the surface of these covers are secretly camouflaged by leaves, with stones and mud to avoid detection by the enemy. Tourists, going through this area, often see a lot of termite mounds, dried leaves, but actually that is how to camouflage the hatch covers which is very safe and effective and provide the air for the underground bunkers. They function as ventilation systems. In addition, the gaps of these termite mounds were the place for the VC guerillas to attack and snipe at the enemy, or listen to the latest news on the battlefield.
