Cu Chi Tunnelerne

Cu Chi tunnelerne er kendt for sine underjordiske gange, og ligger ca. 75 km nordvest for Ho Chi Minh City.

Tunnelerne blev i 1940´erne anlagt af Viet Minh, og blev brugt under krigen mod franskmændene. Under krigen mod amerikanerne, blev de brugt som skjulested for modstandsbevægelsen. Tunnelerne var udgravet i 3 etager og ned til 10 meters dybde.

I 1960´erne mener man, at Cu Chi tunnelerne havde en samlet længde på over 200 km. Efter sigende nåede tunnelerne helt ind under et af hovedekontoerne for den amerikanske hær. Herfra kunne de så lave overraskende angreb. Tunnelerne er ikke mere end 1/2 – 1 meter bredde, men der blev alligevel lavet sovesale, køkkener, hospitaler og forsyningslagere.

Det overskydende jord og ler fra udgravningerne blev skjult i mekongfloden, rismarker, og bombekrater blev fyldt op igen.

Tunnelerne

Kun 70 km. nord for Ho Chi Minh City findes de berømte Cu Chi tunneler. Et udspekuleret netværk af flere hundrede kilometer af tunneler under jorden, lavet af de kommunistiske guerillaer under Vietnamkrigen.

Et besøg i Cu Chi byder på alt fra en historisk indsigt til fascination over det liv man her levede i årevis under krigen. Tunnelerne betragtes af mange i eftertiden som et arkitektonisk mesterværk uden sammenligning, og et besøg her giver enhver en ganske ny vinkel på livet under krigen.

De kommunistiske guerilla tropper, kendt som Viet Cong, gravede tusindevis af kilometer tunneler, herunder et omfattende netværk i Cu Chi-distriktet nordvest for Saigon. Soldaterne brugte disse underjordiske ruter til at huse tropper, transport af forsyninger og som kommunikationsvej. Tunnelerne blev desuden brugt som flugtvej efter overraskelsesangreb på de amerikanske styrker. I dag er en del af tunnelerne stadig intakte, og Cu Chi tunnelerne er blevet en populær turistattraktion. 

Tunnelerne blev allerede påbegyndt i 1940´erne under uafhængighedskrigen med franskmændene og blev altså stærk udvidet under Vietnamkrigen. Tunnelerne blev gravet i hånden og ofte kun små afstande af gangen.

Under Vietnamkrigen, mens luftbombardementerne var heftigst, levede folk under jorden og tunnelerne udviklede sig til en slags underjordiske landsbyer med skoler, hospitaler og våbenfabrikker.

Alt sammen får man helt ind på kroppen ved et besøg i tunnelerne. Man har mulighed for kravle mere end hundrede meter i de smalle tunneler og på egen krop mærke, hvad det betyder ”at gå under jorden”. Der er også mulighed for at prøve diverse skydevåben og se de udspekulerede fælder, som Viet Cong lavede i kampen mod amerikanerne.
