The military underpasses of Vietnam

Then I will talk about places related to the military theme (this is the partisan region of Kucha and the “Museum of the memory of the crimes of the US military” in Ho Chi Minh City). Those who are not very interested in this topic can go to the next subtopic on food.

Since 1954, Vietnam has been divided by 17 parallels between North and South Vietnam. Many groups of partisans fought on the territory of southern Vietnam. Shipments of weapons from northern Vietnam have bypassed the border, via neighboring Laos and Cambodia, along the Ho Chi Minh Trail.

“American War” lasted from 1964 to 1975

Halfway from Teinin to Ho Chi Minh, there is Kucha’s supporters district.

Supporters dug a multi-level network of underground shelters and tunnels in the jungle. The total length was about 200 km.

The guerrillas lived underground, cooked food, repaired weapons, demolished unexploded US bombs, cared for the wounded, and even honeymooned.

The guerrillas are wise with a bomb.

The underpasses were 80 cm by 120 cm, tunnels of this size were the best to resist bombing.

The entrance of the tunnels

Tourists are invited to briefly feel like a Vietcong fighter – crawling under the ground for a few tens of meters in narrow tunnels. Nobody refuses and everyone crawls through the tunnels with great pleasure.

You can see pleasure on the face of Oleg of Belarus.

Due to the inconvenience of crawling through tunnels and their congestion, after reaching the surface of the earth, it is necessary to evacuate the sweat of a t-shirt.

The lack of weapons forced the Viet Cong to excel in the invention of different traps.

Infernal installations arranged in the background of paintings depicting Americans showing signs of Down’s disease, falling into wolf pits pitted with piles …

There is a shooting range in Kucha. You can shoot from the captured American M16, M30 and M60 machine guns, and of course from the Kalashnikov. I choose to shoot with the M30 machine gun. You can pull as much as you want and from what you want, how much money is enough.

At the end of the tour, tourists are fed partisan food – cooked tapioca.

I will write more about the American War and the War Memorial Museum at the very end of the story.
