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.
