Located in South Vietnam, the Cu Chi Tunnels were a large network of tunnels built by Viet Cong guerrilla cells to carry out strategic attacks against the North Vietnamese Army. The tunnels were used for moving supplies, communications, troops, and equipment. They were also used as a base from which to launch these attacks.

Living conditions in the tunnels

During the Vietnam War, the Cu Chi Tunnels were a major asset for the Viet Cong. The tunnels were a complex maze of chambers. They were used for many purposes, including hiding troops, hospitals, and ammunition depots. They were also useful as a staging area for the US army.

The Cu Chi Tunnels have been restored and are now a tourist attraction. Visitors can walk through the tunnels, shoot guns, and see documentaries on life in the tunnels.

VC guerrilla cells were able to link up with each other

During the Vietnam War, the Cu Chi tunnels were a base of operations for the Viet Cong. The VC built hundreds of kilometers of tunnels, which were used as shelters, communication networks, and weapons caches. They were located 20 miles northwest of Saigon. The tunnels were dug by hand.

The tunnels were often rigged with punji stick pits and explosive booby traps. The tunnels were also lighted with oil lamps. Some tunnels were four levels deep. Some portions of the tunnels caved in after heavy bombing.

VC guerrilla cells were able to infiltrate Saigon at will

During the Vietnam War, the Cu Chi Tunnels were a vital defensive weapon of the North Vietnamese. They served as hiding places and a supply line for the North Vietnamese, and were used to resupply and protect them during combat. They were also a source of frustration for the U.S. military in Saigon.

In the late 1940s, the Viet Minh dug the first tunnels in the area. They were designed to store arms, but later became important hiding places for resistance fighters. They were also used as a base for the Communist attacks against Saigon.

Viet Cong forces used the tunnels to develop boobie traps

During the Vietnam War, the Viet Cong developed boobie traps that they used to devastating effect. These booby traps were mainly made of bamboo and snakes. They were rigged to explode when stepped on.

The VC used tunnels as a way to protect themselves from US air power. They could hide in the tunnels during daylight hours, and then retreat at night. These underground tunnels served as a base for attacks on Saigon during the 1968 Tet offensive. They also played an important role in creating ambushes.

Viet Cong forces used the tunnels as a base from which they could launch strategic attacks

During the Vietnam War, Viet Cong forces used Cu Chi tunnels as a base from which to launch strategic attacks on Saigon. The 250km tunnel system crisscrossed the surrounding area and allowed the VC guerrilla cells to link up.

In the early 1960s, the North Vietnamese and VC troops began using the tunnels as a stronghold. These tunnels were also used as a base during the Tet offensive in 1968.

After the Tet Offensive, the VC tunnels became inhospitable. Thousands of Viet Cong and civilians died in the tunnels.

Viet Cong forces used the tunnels to move supplies, communications, troops, and equipment

During the Vietnam War, Viet Cong forces built a large network of underground tunnels that were used to move supplies, communications, troops, and equipment. This was a way to resist the better-supplied South Vietnamese forces.

Cu Chi Tunnels were located 75 km northwest of Ho Chi Minh City. They were a vital defensive advantage against American troops.

The tunnels had three layers. They were made of hard-packed clay, which impeded demolition. They were also filled with a variety of traps, including fire, hot oil, and snakes.

Viet Cong forces used the tunnels to link up with each other

During the Vietnam War, Viet Cong forces used the Cu Chi tunnels to link up with each other and attack Saigon. Their tunnels were used as hiding places, weapon caches, and communication lines.

By the end of the war, many tunnels had been heavily bombed. The US military used B-52 bombers to carpet bomb the region. They were accompanied by bulldozers and tanks that defoliated the surrounding jungle. Thousands of civilians and refugees were forced out of the area.

VC guerrilla cells used the tunnels to link up with each other

During the Vietnam War, the Cu Chi Tunnels were a major base for guerrilla warfare. They were a two-hour drive northwest of Ho Chi Minh City. They were also used by the Viet Cong to attack Saigon.

The tunnels were a vital part of the North Vietnamese and VC's logistical structure. They were used for hiding soldiers, storing weapons, and carrying supplies. They were also used as communication channels and a staging point for surprise attacks.

These tunnels were dug by the Viet Minh in the late 1940s. By the mid-1960s, the network had grown to 75 miles.

Cu Chi Tunnels excursions with a guide

During the Vietnam War, the Viet Cong built a network of underground tunnels for their forces to hide and attack the US Army. The Cu Chi tunnels have three levels.

The Cu Chi Tunnels are 250 kilometers long. They are built by hand and reach the Cambodian border. The entire system is enclosed and contains ventilation vents that have been camouflaged. The tour takes about six hours to complete.

The guide will explain the history and importance of the tunnels. The trip also includes a special tea. You will be shown how weapons were made, the different traps, and field hospitals. The tour will also include a shooting range with real guns. You will also see a crater created by a bomb.

Cu Chi Tunnels

The tunnels are dark, claustrophobic, and humid. The most exciting part of the tour is descending into the tunnels. You will be able to exit at every 20 meters. It can be a little scary if you're not used to this type of environment.

The tour also includes a visit to a special constructed living area. The area is made up of hollows in the ground with wood and bamboo roofs. There are workshops and souvenir stalls.

You can also have a picnic while visiting the Cu Chi Tunnels. During the war, the main food of the guerilla was tapioca. The boiled cassava is served on a wooden table and accompanied by a mix of toasted sesame and crushed peanuts.
