These tunnels were used to hide the local soldiers and peasants as they fought the Americans & other invaders. The tunnels were in the jungle and very well disguised. There were many booby traps also where soldiers fell onto spikes.

Definitely would recommend going here for the history and experience. It was very interesting and would highly suggest walking (crouching through the tunnels) to get the full experience of just how tight they were!
